The TL;DR is : I suspect you're right.

Some more detail : For my own personal machines, I use Arch linux. This is VERY lightweight, to the point that you have to install a cron package to be able to run cron jobs. For my Arch machines, I've been using cpanm, because there are few to no perl modules installed by default. That seems to have worked OK, because cpanm winds up managing pretty much all the perl modules.

CentOS is a different animal. It comes with a reasonable number of perl modules installed by default. And we always wind up wanting some module that is not available in the system package manager (ie yum) yet. The one I wanted in this case was GeoIP2, which is pretty new. Up until now I've been using cpanm for anything not available in yum. But after this, I'm thinking the way to go may well be to download the source from CPAN and build by hand.

I'm certainly open to hearing about other, better management schemes. I'm relatively new to perl, for one thing. And what I've come up with as described here wasn't something I thought about too much, I just kind of fell into it. A workmate was also suggesting that building by hand may be the way to go.

Having my own separate perl... Hmmm.... Also something to think about.
