I don't think the problem is so much the destination of the lib files.
IMHO they should be installed in the local or site perl directories
amongst any other local CPAN modules.

Where I see the problem is that the current installation ignores all
non-library files completely (the app root directory and the config
file), plus any other data files the app should need.

So the templates, images (i.e. the /root) are considered shared data?

And the configuration file should go for example in /etc in Debian and
/usr/local/etc on FBSD??

And if the app needs some other files for example a sqllite db file,
where would those go? /var/lib/db ?
How about Windows, how does work there?
