We had the same problem here. We managed to fix it but it was a while
ago and we can't remember exactly what we did. Looking through some of
our scrappy notes we saw that we removed the description and in rt 1.1.5

cp /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Module/Install/* inc/Module/Install

We are pretty sure this is the fix that applies to this, or it may be a
fix for something else  :)

Good luck.
