WRT Mail::Audit, or any Perl modules, are you familiar with local::lib? 
(That's no typo, it's one of the few non-pragma CPAN modules that's all 
in lowercase.)  It provides a way to install modules when you don't have 
root on a host.

I find the perldoc for local::lib to be a little confusing, but try this 
tutorial for a walk-through of what it can do for you:
