A bit confusing when to use "cpanm" or when to use "apt-get". But yes it's ok now!!!!
For the default system Perl, always use apt-get. Installing modules using a CPAN client to a Perl managed by a package system is likely to cause you grief sooner or later. (You'll break package dependencies etc.)
If you had a separate Perl to use a CPAN client with - problems with failing modules can often be resolved by checking how the debian packager built the module. In the case of module GD for wheezy / armhf you will find patches for Makefile.PL , and test files. Applying these to the source for GD makes a build from source work.
(A side note - probably covered elsewhere - if you build your own Perl you need to configure to use gcc-4.7)
