in reply to A Guide to Installing Modules

I have been assigned to install a whole load of CPAN modules on the machines I admin for. The machines are a collection of differing RedHat boxes used by techies who like to change configurations and versions (so we have a lot of different RedHat and Perl versions). I tried CPAN but it requires an initial setup for each machine and I just want to install a directory full of perl-module.tar.gz's; I tried a script that essentially did uncompress, perl Makefile.PL; make; make test; make install but some packages throw up prompts on the Makefile.PL step and I don't know of a way to just indicate the defaults to each package. Any help would be appreciated.
