You could use cpanget (part of cpanspec).Or, cpan -g module module.

While I hail from a RH platform, ultimately both command come from the CPAN archive and "cpan" in particular - from the CPAN distribution, should be totally platform agnostic, and comes to a little more of

use App::Cpan; my $rc = App::Cpan->run( @ARGV ); exit $rc;

Is that a RH thing? I'm using Ubuntu. – luckytaxi Mar 12 '12 at 17:44

You can try

cpanm --test-only --notest Test::Fatal

and then look into '~/.cpanm/latest-build/', here should be all sources used in last build process.
