We really need to see more of your errors to see what the problem is (you could use a <readmore> tag in your post). Or, you could paste the output into your scratchpad, or host it somewhere if it's very large.

I suspect that the problem might be permissions, though I don't know how these work on a Mac.

The make install step needs to be run as root, or a user that has write access to the perl lib paths. If the install step fails for a dependency module, will still carry on and try (and fail) to install the dependent modules, which might fail to make and give the output you have shown.

Another possibility is a problem with your C compiler. Several of the modules needed by Bundle::CPAN contain XS code, and you need to have a working C compiler to build it - the same C compiler as your perl was built with.
