pacpan is surely an excellent option. I have myself developed a similar
tool (perl-cpanplus-pacman on AUR) but I have not touched it much since
last year, and I presume pacpan is more usable now. I have also a small
perl script to check for out-of-date version of CPAN stuff. See
(Change the variable $cpandir to suit your situation).
