Nate seems to have sorted out your issue this time, but in future
remember that Debian contains a huge number of perl modules (including
the SpamAssassin ones) that are just an apt-get install away.  If the
version in {stable, testing} is too old, then you can go get the version
from sid.  Also, there's dh-make-perl which can be used to make .deb
package from CPAN modules.
