Several Dependencies errors using MCPAN on RHEL 5.3 / CentOS 5.3

I never encountered that with 5.2 on both, but since I am using 5.3, I am getting weird errors.

Let me first explain what I am doing.

On a fresh install, I am first initialize MCPAN using the following commands
export LANG=C
perl -MCPAN -e shell

I always answer 'no' at the first question whether I am ready to configure mcpan manually.

I am trying now to install the following packages
install Bundle::CPAN
install Bundle::LWP
install Bundle::libnet
install DBI
install DBD::mysql

And receive the following errors at the end (I always confirm the defaults with 'Enter' during the installation)

I cannot post the output of DBD::Mysql as I don't have MySQL installed on this server.

Anyone has a way to shed some light on this ?
