Adding Perl Modules

Using CentOS5/RHEL5 I needed to add some perl modules for SpamAssassin.
Note sure how important this first step is but I:
# cd /root/.cpan/sources
# wget

# perl -MCPAN -e shell

when asked about configuration I said 'no' and allowed the autoconfiguration to take place. I then arrived at the CPAN prompt:

 cpan>  install Mail::SPF::Query
 cpan>  install IP::Country::Fast

Perl downloaded files and asked if I wanted to install dependencies which I did. I then carried on with my spamassasin and sa-update installation.
