Stale mirrors in CPAN

[ #8930 ]
This might be helpful to someone else -- the last few times that I've tried to install modules using CPAN.pm, the installation has hung as LWP tried to retrieve the source files across FTP. It turns out that the problem is with stale CPAN mirrors -- a simple lynx ftp://ftp.insert-your-mirror-here.com showed that over half of the mirrors in my $CPAN::Config->{ 'urllist' } were not accessible. Once I removed the non-responding URLs, I was able to install modules again.
