But that's where you > use debian/rules ;-) MJ, Gunnar, Martin, what MJ is trying to do may be awkward to achieve with MakeMaker, but it's a breeze with Module::Build (don't know about Module:: Install, but I guess it can do it easily, too). For example, look at this package of mine, which can be installed "manually" via Module::Build but also has debian/ infrastructure built on top of that: http://www.bitshapers.com/thingy http://dev.bitshapers.com/source/thingy/trunk/ http://dev.bitshapers.com/source/thingy/trunk/Build.PL?view=auto (I could have suggested other packages that actually are in the Debian archive, such as courier-filter-perl, but that's not a CGI app, and thingy is the one with the most comprehensive Build.PL I can offer.)
