how'd you do that? It wouldn't go for it even after su'ing to root.

I didn't do anything special, I just was able to sudo cpan, then force install Net::MAC::Vendor. This worked for me on 2 different systems, each of which have 10.3.5 installed...

Here's what I typed

$ sudo cpan
cpan> force install Net::MAC::Vendor

I've already done this, so I cannot show you the install log. Unfortunately, I did not save it...
