Perl is much more mature and has CPAN.

Well, Ruby has rubyforge instead. Most stuff at rubyforge is now stored as so called "gems", which makes them convenient to install.

I didn't count the modules on CPAN and rubyforge, but I think CPAN has more to offer, since Perl has much longer history. Still, the module base on Rubyforge is pretty big (http://rubyforge.org/softwaremap/trove_list.php).
