cpan> o conf makepl_arg PREFIX="/path/to/module"
Under Win32 using PPM:

    If you want to use CPAN as a non-privleged user, you'll also have to create a local copy of CPAN/Config.pm in $HOME/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm and use it to override the default paths for the CPAN installation, otherwise you won't even be able to start the CPAN interface.

    I ran into an additional problem: a tool tries to mess around with the site directory. You also need to modify the CPAN configuration SITEPREFIX to your local perl directory in some cases.
