The installer uses Module::Install

So basically:

1) lib/ is installed in: /usr/local/lib/perl5
2) script/* becomes /usr/local/bin/*
3) man pages are usually installed in /usr/local/share/man/man3/


perldoc Module::Install for more info ;-)

dh-make-perl if you want to make a debian/ubuntu package
