[ABE.pm] upgrading CPAN

I've run into a bit of a problem and I think it's because of an old CPAN

I'm currently running CPAN 1.61.  I tried to install File::HomeDir (a
dependency for SVG::TT::Graph) and got the following error:

Running make install
Undefined subroutine &main::install called at -e line 1.

I'm assuming a 'force install' won't work.

The only message I found related to this 
(http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=17719) mentioned
something about CPAN versions, but it was on Win32.

Assuming that the problem is in CPAN version, can I upgrade CPAN w/o
upgrading Perl (currently at 5.8.0) and everything else?
