Under Debian Squeeze, it appears that the directories in this vicinity are owned by 
'staff' which is a pseudo-account, and I can normally write to them.  The issue is in 
creating a new directory, and is not necessary with every cpan install, just sometimes.  I 
think the intention was that "staff" could install modules, but it doesn't quite work.
