In fairness, Perl upstream had similar problems with Debian distributing
their product piece-meal.

The principal concern was the exclusion of documentation, which seems to
have been assuaged by the addition of a stub for perldoc which instructs
users to install the perl-doc package.

--bod, noting that the INSTALL doc now includes the contents of Debian's
       perl-base as an example of a minimal install...
