I upgraded a laptop that was running Feisty to GG and problems  
relating (I think) to the rearrangement of @INC. I hosed the perl  
installation (deleted everything pointed to be @INC and forced a  
reinstall), upgraded CPAN to the latest version, switched to using  
sudo for make install / ./Build install and chowned ~/.cpan and  
everything below it to me. Once I'd done all that it worked fine.

Simple things to check - do you own all the files below ~/.cpan?
