Is there any way to upload files? Either through CPanel or FTP?  If so
then my approach would be to use a combination of local::lib and cpanm
to install modules to ~/perl5 on a machine of your own running the same
distro and then copy that folder up to the server.  If not, then my
approach would be to find another hosting service.  Even Dreamhost give
you SSH access and they're very low cost.
