Text-Markdown-1.000031.tar.gz has a checksum error when installing via command line cpan or untaring the file from cpan.org.
Oddly enough, this is only in one of my environment. Same perl version on each (5.8.3) and the checksum error is only on one.
Tried installing dependencies independently, removing /.cpan/build/ and /.cpan/source/author/ files and still get the same message every time:
tar: directory checksum error
Couldn't untar Text-Markdown-1.000031.tar
CPAN: File::Temp loaded ok (v0.22)

Maybe you're using a different CPAN mirror?
Can you reproduce it with wget -O - http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/B/BO/BOBTFISH/Text-Markdown-1.000031.tar.gz | tar xz?
wget -O - http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/B/BO/BOBTFISH/Text-Markdown-1.000031.tar.gz | tar xz
I think it may be a difference in tar between solaris and linux environments (one can use the z flag, the other can't) and perhaps a dependence on the z flag in the cpan distribution
I was able to install finally by downloading the .tar.gz file and running the following:
gzcat Text-Markdown-1.000031.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
perl Makefile.pl still had the errors specified above, and make test failed, but it installed anyway. I'll kick the tires and let you know how it actually worked.
You may want to change this issue/make a new issue surrounding the reliance on the z flag in tar and failure in Solaris cpan installation.
