Hi Alex!

I suggest you not use CPAN directly as, as you aready noticed, you'll end in a mess.

If the module you want to install is not in Portage, you can try looking for it
in the perl-experimental overlay (install layman, git, and synchronize the
overlay): there are about 300 commonly-used extra modules there.

If your module isn't there as well, consider asking for  it to be added:
basically you can do that on this list.
Another option is to use CPANPLUS-Dist-Gentoo, which does a better job that
g-cpan as of now.

Hope this helps.

Talk to you soon,
