Installing perl modules via CPAN can be a pain too.
I've taken a pragmatic approach here on our new MailScanner boxes, which
1: Use Julian's installers for ClamAV/SA and MailScanner
2: Install additional perl modules (e.g. perl-Mail-DKIM, etc) from the
rpmforge yum repository
So far I haven't had to use CPAN to install any required modules. This
makes maintenance so much easier, and helps ensure that any security
vulnerabilites get dealt with in a timely manner (either via yum or
Julian's updated tarballs).
