I recommend you don't use CPAN; instead, use MacPorts to install any  
Perl modules you need. Most Perl modules are in separate ports whose  
names start with "p5-". Use "port search" to see if the modules you  
need are there; if not, we can add them.

For PerlMagick there is a p5-perlmagick port but it does not compile;  

Both tickets request that the port be removed, so I guess we should  
do that.

To get PerlMagick, compile the ImageMagick port with the +perl variant.

P.S: Use Reply All so your reply goes to the list too, not just to me.
