It does not work along with RPM very well... if you mix CPAN with RPM
(and you can't avoid RPM considering you need the OS Perl that comes
in RPM) a future update of the RPMs might break CPAN-installed
packages, or might even break the whole Perl install.

If you need Perl modules, I recommend you look into RPMforge, their
collection of RPM-packaged Perl modules is great, and if there is
anything else you need that is not there you may request it on their
mailing list.
