Uh, yeah, if you're using the version of CPAN that came with 5.005 it's going to be installing Perl 5.8.3 when you do that. You need to manually install a recent version of CPAN where they fixed the bug that CPAN would try to upgrade Perl all the time.

Yeah, I noticed that along the way. But I moved everything to a new partition with more room and redid it - and it looks like the bits of CPAN that did that were upgraded since it didn't try to upgrade Perl this time.

Generally you can also just build modules out of ports. I don't particularly like CPAN, personally, though it is damn handy on a linux box, so I usually build from ports. Makes life a lot easier if your modules have library dependencies or anything of that kind.
