To fix it you have to re-run the CPAN first time setup,
 or edit the duff mirror out of /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/CPAN/Config.pm

Then wait a day; or go into your CPAN cache directory
 and delete just about everything.

Only then will it work again.
Makes me wary about going near mirror.aarnet.

There is no perl one line hack
 that a page of java won't do more elegantly.
