It appears that ExtUtils::MakeMaker, a standard Perl module commonly
used to generate Makefiles for Perl modules, emits the rule:

install :: all pure_install doc_install

This appears to account for the failure of some of my Perl packages, and
probably many others.  This should be fixed in MakeMaker, not in the
packages that use it.
