Custom umask will cause an incorrect permissions for some perl dirs, created during cpan usage. As result only you will have access to the required perl libraries. It is importan if you wanna to share those libraries with other users. You need set umask to default value before execute cpan.

The default mask value is S_IWGRP|S_IWOTH (022, write access for the owner only). (man umask)
