What I would do is cd into the directory where the files have been
downloaded and try and do it "by hand" to see what the problem is.

  cd ~/.cpan/build/HTML-Mason*    # this is a guess at the name
  perl Makefile.PL
  make clean
  make test

and see if there's anything in there you can search the archives at
