This part is actually the best solution. In your build rule, you
do something like:
$(PERL) Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=vendor
and then you won't have this problem.
I had that in my debian/rules file, but for me it was not working. I
am not sure why. I still received lintian warnings and then changed
that line above to this:
$(PERL) Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=vendor MAN3EXT=3
and all the lintian warnings stopped. (As you can see I also had
other lintian warnings as well.)
