Well, what module are you trying to install? 

I would suggest: 

1. Check to see if it's already packaged in Fedora: 

yum list perl-Whatever
yum provides 'perl(whatever::whatever)'

If it is, just yum install it. 

2. If it's not packaged already: 

yum install cpan2rpm
'man cpan2rpm' to find all the options, but: 

cpan2rpm Proc::Daemon /tmp/String-Canonical-1.2.tar.gz

should produce a rpm you can install with 'yum installl ./whatever.rpm' 

Hope that helps,
