OK, good, now you know you have a clean base to start from.

Are you familiar with the CPAN shell? Invoke with "perl -MCPAN -e shell".
Once set up (it asks you some questions), you can do such things as "i
CGI::Carp" and get info, which will tell you that CGI::Carp is included in
the same tarball as CGI.

grepping for "use CGI" in the subversion source shows that those modules are
only used by a couple of supplementary scripts. Either --nodeps, or try and
"apt-get install perl-CGI", or build a package with cpanflute2.

General comment: Using -U instead of -i is a good habit (except for
kernels). Usually you want to simultaneously remove old versions of a

Looks good.
