Re: Bug#1916: perl: wrong entries in Config.pm

BTW, I assume that followups to debian-bugs go to debian-devel.  Is this

Peter Tobias spoke unto the world and said:

Well, technically, they aren't since that's where it was installed and
perl has the concept of different install and executable paths.  It's
easy enough to fix though.

The first three can be replaced rather easily with postinst but the last
two should stay the same since I am the one who did the cf (configure).
We don't want to make Config.pm a conffile because we want it definitely
replaced on each new rev.  Only Configure (and possibly postinst) should
edit it.
