Download CPAN perl modules separately?


I have a server that is not connected to the internet, and I'm trying to install RT (Best practical request tracker). There seems to be a lot of perl dependencies that I need to get hold of, and the installation script seems to be using CPAN for this task. Not having access to Internet causes this process to fail.

These are the first few lines of the dependency test script:
/usr/bin/perl ./sbin/rt-test-dependencies --verbose --with-mysql --with-fastcgi 
        rt group (apache)...found 
        bin owner (root)...found 
        libs owner (root)...found 
        libs group (bin)...found 
        web owner (apache)...found 
        web group (apache)...found 
CLI dependencies: 
        Getopt::Long >= 2.24...found 
CORE dependencies: 
        Class::ReturnValue >= 0.40...MISSING 
        Text::Quoted >= 2.02...MISSING 
        CSS::Squish >= 0.06...MISSING 
        Encode >= 2.13...MISSING 
                Encode version 2.13 required--this is only version 2.12 
        Module::Versions::Report >= 1.05...MISSING 
        MIME::Entity >= 5.425...MISSING 
        DBI >= 1.37...found 
        Locale::Maketext::Lexicon >= 0.32...MISSING 
        Devel::StackTrace >= 1.19...MISSING 
        File::Temp >= 0.18...MISSING 
                File::Temp version 0.18 required--this is only version 0.16 
        Locale::Maketext >= 1.06...found 
        Tree::Simple >= 1.04...MISSING 
        Text::Template >= 1.44...MISSING 
        HTML::Scrubber >= 0.08...MISSING 
        File::Spec >= 0.8...found 
        DBIx::SearchBuilder >= 1.54...MISSING 
make: *** [testdeps] Broken pipe
So what I need is to download the dependencies, and install them. Is there a way to download them all at once, or must I search for each and every one of them and download&install them separately?

I'm running RHEL 5. Maybe these dependencies are in EPEL?

Best regards,

Ah, I found a few packages in EPEL. Didn't find them before I posted my question here, but now it seems like many of the packages are available from EPEL.
