    Hi there,

I am looking around for a really simple way to install CPAN on FreeBSD.
      I keep running into errors in one variation or another.

    Anybody have a good page to send me to?

    Cheers,

    Noah

I don't install CPAN on FreeBSD.  I use the ports and packages from
http://www.freebsd.org/ports
Do a search for the module that you require P5- means it is a perl module also you can use the ports collection for PHP modules as well. This will automatically install any other dependent modules.

Hope this helps
