debian perl packages do not always have consistent names. for example: * libcgi-perl is actually the CPAN distribution 'cvswebedit', and does not contain a module called CGI. * libcgi-pm-perl is where the distribution '' lives. there's no good way to override that right now; CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb doesn't seem to be aware of the dist name at all, and it doesn't take any options for overriding the debian package name.
