I've found mixing and matching CPAN modules with those from RPM on 
CentOS problematic in the past, and I prefer to use local::lib 
(http://search.cpan.org/dist/local-lib/lib/local/lib.pm) or a custom 
perl build.

Just my 2c, this is what works in our setup, it may not be right for 
you, and as always, YMMV!
