I discovered the problem. Moose requires a newer version of Class::MOP

I don't know why cpan didn't try to install the newer version, because
I've seen that the newer version was required in the Makefile.PL.
But now installs fine after manually installing Class::MOP.
CPAN.pm using CPAN::SQLite had some inconsistent behavior with following
dependencies until the last version or so. Maybe you got bit by this?
Aha, that might be the problem because I installed that plugin for CPAN that
uses a local database.
I tried for more times to install the newer version of CPAN, but each time
I've done this, CPAN gave errors when trying to install a module with it, so
I let the version that came with the ActivePerl distribution.
Anyway, I found another problem that disallow me to install some modules
with CPAN. Some tests stop the execution and wait forever.
In cases like this I used to install the ppm version of those modules, but
now if I want to use local::lib I need to manually install those modules and
specify the prefix when doing perl Makefile.PL.
Could it be possible to use local::lib and specify that I want to skip the
tests for the current module?
