Upstream support for vendor dirs does not seem complete. I'm modified
MakeMaker to include the appropriate install rule (which incidentally
does not create .packlist files).
Man pages for perl packages are installed to /usr/share/man/man with
the extensions .1 and .3.
Modules installed by MakeMaker's vendor install use the same directories
although with extensions .1p and .3pm to avoid potential conflicts.
