Sounds like you want 'dh-make-perl'

You can do, e.g.

dh-make-perl --build --cpan Module::Name

which will build you a deb of that module, which you can then install.
Remember that there are prebuilt Perl module packages for many modules.
Normally, they are called libmodulename-perl, or something like that.
Do an 'apt-cache search' to check whether anything pre-exists.
