If you know the right mirror, "o conf cpan; o commit" within the CPAN shell.
(Check the syntax.)
If you don't know the right mirror and want configuration fun:
$ perl -MCPAN::FirstTime -e 'CPAN::FirstTime::init()'
Silly trivia: one of my most satisfying patches to Perl was because Jarkko,
the pumpking at the time, wanted a better pager to select CPAN mirrors, so I
patched CPAN::Something_Or_Other to have better paging.
(Another one was patching the documentation for ref() to say "This is broken
in these ways....)
