you may not be changing the right 'root' user...you might need to change
Also, and perhaps most seriously, why would use use CPAN to update when
you have an rpm based system and most perl packages are already build as
rpm's? If you stay with perl rpms packaged for your system, you
(theoretically at least) don't have issues where the CPAN updates over
write existing perl modules installed via rpm. It's not recommended to
use CPAN because of that issue.
here is an example of a method to see if the perl module exists in rpm
# yum search perl|grep -i MailTools
perl-MailTools.noarch : Various mail-related perl modules
