Thanks for the tip: I got it working. I didn't know I could install perl stuff local to my login. The process doesn't seem to be documented well. I couldn't even find a mention of it on the CPAN site. Here's what I did for the sake of anyone else, who finds themselves befuddled.

perl -MCPAN -e shell
since it was my first time, it asked me a bunch of questions. The important one was to tell it to install perl stuff locally to my login, when it asked where to put things. I used ~/perl
