CPAN install difficulties on CentOS 4.4

    I just finished install some modules (i.e. Archive::Tar Compress::Zlib
    and its dependencies)

    because in order to install any other module it needed the above two.

    So here's my question, why doesn't cpan come installed with these base
    packages so that basic installations can be made from the cpan
    interface instead of having to manually install modules?

    Is it a setting during install, was there an init script I didn't run?

    Any input is greatly appreciated,
    Dan
