It does, if the CPAN config's right (I install *everything* into ~ on 
our main ev server so I can run bleeding edge versions of things without 
  messing up the rest of my team's work). Getting the CPAN config right 
is ... an interesting experience sometimes though. Can you send me the 
CPAN version as well please, and double-check if CPANPLUS is installed?
