Yes, that error I got was while trying to install Mac::Glue. I have
the standard 5.8.6 in the standard place but have also had to install
5.8.8 for another reason. They should not be clashing; 5.8.8 is
normally used, but "#!/usr/bin/perl" still points to 5.8.6
I don't really need 5.8.8, as I was experimentally trying to use some
other module(s) when it was added. I do not use the new module(s) or
need 5.8.8, but am not sure how to remove it. Having said all that,
your saying 5.8.6 has Mac::Glue already there, and if so, maybe part
of my solution would be to downgrade to 5.8.6?
I am getting good with Perl but, holistically, I have some way to go
with CPAN, etc.

Perl distribution other than the standard one that comes with OS X?
Mac::Glue was there for me, but my system doesn't have anything in /
I'm having a similar, but much worse issue right now. I can't
install any modules. Every time I try to install anything with
CPAN, I get that error on ExtUtils::MakeMaker, which won't install
because it isn't there.

OK, I am slow -- certainly in catching up with the programatic use
of Growl and, erm, OK, most of CPAN.
I think this is directly related to your issue but I am unable to
fathom the solution myself.
I get this error:

Do you think you can clue me in on my mistake(s) ?

Thanks. Problem solved. I wonder why Apple couldn't do that before
shipping the OS. Seems I have a bug report to file.

You can set that in your CPAN config I guess:
% locate Config.pm | grep CPAN
