Well, actually, the default install of Perl on Mac OS X expects to find stuff in /Library/Perl/[RELEASE NUMBER]* and you can copy-paste from a backup of that when reinstalling the OS after wiping your boot drive due to irreparable file system corruption, without having to go through the entire reinstalling all the CPAN modules once more to have MobiPerl up and running again.
But yeah, you first need the CPAN modules installed to begin with and you can do that either via MacPorts (in which case it all ends up in a different directory) or manually.
