The first thing to do is to see if there's a package for the module you want
-- it's amazing how many CPAN modules are already Debian-packaged.
For example, I needed to install Net::Netmask recently and just did the
$ apt-cache search net::netmask
libnet-netmask-perl - parse, manipulate and lookup IP network blocks
# apt-get update
# apt-get install libnet-netmask-perl
