Need help with CPAN gone awry

Ok, I have an issue and I am not sure what is causing it. I am working on a Fedora Core 7 Linux machine (my laptop). I have not had any problems with installing modules via CPAN. All has installed fine since I initially configured the interface.

Welll, I got home today, tried to install the BUndle::CPAN module, and here is what was kicked back at me:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $ sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::CPAN'
  2. CPAN: Storable loaded ok
  3. Going to read /home/jlk/.cpan/Metadata
  4.   Database was generated on Fri, 31 Aug 2007 12:36:44 GMT
  5. Going to read /home/jlk/.cpan/sources/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz
  6. CPAN: LWP::UserAgent loaded ok
  7. Fetching with LWP:
  8.   http://www.perl.com/CPAN/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz
  9. Going to read /home/jlk/.cpan/sources/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz
  10. Undefined subroutine &Compress::Zlib::gzopen called at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/CPAN.pm line 5721.
  11.  
I have not made any changes to my installation recently. The only things that could be considered changes to my machine would be updates and I have not seen anything even remotely Perl related coming down.

Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Jeff

Just an FYI to anyone reading the previous entry, I have now posted this over at Perlmonks.org as was suggested by one of the experts.
