This is broken. Pinging a single CPAN mirror won't tell you if the
CPAN.pm module will work. CPAN.pm can be configured to access any number
of mirrors, possibly on the local network!
I don't know of a reliable way to figure out if CPAN.pm works. I think we
may just have to try it and then test afterword to see if it worked. If
it didn't then we show a message telling them why the install failed and
offering up the --without-cpan option.
