I don't have a Mac either, but I can verify the same problems occur on Windows 7 x64 with Strawberry 5.16.1. Doing the process step-by-step (without using CPAN client):

Seems like the PaxHeaders.4875 directory is created during the TAR archive extract. Did a "hidden" directory get archived in your tarball on distro creation?
