I meant Module::Build. I'm using Module::Build (not dh-make-perl) for all
my Perl/CPAN packages. I also write manually the Debian package control
files for all my Perl/CPAN packages.

As far as I can see, dh-make-perl does not yet work properly with
Module::Build-based packages. (Besides, writing my own Debian package
control files was a good exercise to learn about the Debian packaging
process.) The patch mentioned above may change that, but a patched
version of dh-make-perl has not yet been uploaded, hence I said "doesn't
work ... just yet".
