When I hand built padre I built it from the ground up starting with building a new perl in /opt and using that exclusively. So if your going to build it that would be my best recommendation. The padre and wxperl site had / has a good guide on building in snow leopard. 

I have had a few attempts at using CPAN with the default install of perl on Leopard/Snow Leopard and pretty much I have come to the conclusion that it is not worth the hassle. I have started using local::lib rather successfully in my environments and a added bonus seems to be less issues with software updates (so far).
