What permissions are necessary for PPM to allow access to area: perl?

I'm an admin on my Mac (running OS X 10.8.2) and have installed ActivePerl-5.14. My PPM does not allow me access to the install area: perl. I'm assuming there's a permissions issue. Can someone please let me know what perms are required to install in this area?

Alternately, you can specify a user-specific install area:

Tried that (both before posting, and after seeing your reply). 'sudo ppm' results in a running instance where 'perl' still shows a closed lock under PPM Preferences->Areas.
