Needing lots of modules is not dependency hell, needing different
versions of the same modules is dependency hell.  To make your life
easier, use your native package management system to solve the

sudo apt-get install libgd-graph-perl

If your favorite package management doesn't have GD::Graph, you can
set CPAN to follow and just say

cpan GD::Graph

and walk away for the computer for a while.  If you absolutely cannot
stand letting cpan install the dependencies for you then take a look
at the gnuplot program*.
