I also just upgraded/added a bunch of modules using CPAN (1.9205). I get similar errors, but have been able to fix one of them by installing an older version of Parse::RecDescent:
cpan[12]> m Parse::RecDescent Catching error: 'Can\'t locate auto/main/version/("".al in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/5.8.8/sun4-solaris /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/5.8.8 /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/sun4-solaris /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/site_perl/5.8.8 /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/site +_perl /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/5.8.8) at /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/5.8.8/CPAN line 10254 ' at /opt/perl/perl-5.8.8/lib/5.8.8/ line 281 CPAN::shell() called at -e line 1
Now this works.
cpan[13]> m Parse::RecDescent Module id = Parse::RecDescent DESCRIPTION Recursive descent parser generator CPAN_USERID DCONWAY (Damian Conway <>) CPAN_VERSION 1.94 CPAN_FILE D/DC/DCONWAY/Parse-RecDescent-1.94.tar.gz UPLOAD_DATE 2003-04-09 DSLIP_STATUS MdpO?

I was tipped to this when building Module::ExtractUse (0.22):

You may wish to install the v +ersions of the modules indicated above before proceeding with this installatio +n
This hasn't completely fixed the problem, but I'm getting fewer errors.
