I'm not sure this helps if you are doing an automated install :

        bash-3.1$ sudo cpan SVN::Core
        CPAN: File::HomeDir loaded ok (v0.65)
        CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.15)
        Going to read /home/jonathan/.cpan/Metadata

        Warning: Cannot install SVN::Core, don't know what it is.
        Try the command
            i /SVN::Core/
        to find objects with matching identifiers.
