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.

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.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
