  • Have you solved this issue?

    I don't think there is anything wrong (at least for you) with the cpan script. It looks like you thought PERL5LIB was one thing but it wasn't, and that's why things failed. That's going to be a problem with any Perl script.
    • Yup. The cpan shell just happens to be the only thing I sudo to use, ergo it was the only place PERL5LIB was going away.

      I had thought I had checked it, by su'ing to root and looking at it, and it's properly set there. I didn't realize sudo and su behaved differently in that respect, so I thought I'd eliminated that problem. The fact that that was the only solution I was coming across in Google probably should have told me something, I guess.
