I'm not a very heavy perl user, but I've never *needed* to install CPAN on
FreeBSD. A little creative searching has revealed that most perl packages
are part of the FreeBSD Ports collection.
If you use more obscure CPAN packages, I can see there might be a need to
install CPAN, but try ports first.
