Crypt-SSLeay can't verify hostnames

mendeepak has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Net::SSL from Crypt-SSLeay can\'t verify hostnames; either install IO::Socket::SSL or turn off verification by setting the PERL_LWP_SSL_VERIFY_HOSTNAME environment variable to 0
Is there a way around this problem ?
currently To work around the error "Net::SSL from Crypt-SSLeay can\'t verify hostnames" i used PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS="IO::Socket::SSL" .But this doesn't look convincing

    The error message lists two alternative approaches. You didn't tell us which one you took.

    Did you install IO::Socket::SSL? What was the outcome?

    Did you set PERL_LWP_SSL_VERIFY_HOSTNAME=0? What was the outcome? Note that this disables the hostname verification.

      I installed IO::Socket::SSL and used this to verify hostnames and currently working fine for me.
      I wanted to know why Crypt-SSLeay fails to verify hostnames?.
