ExtUtils::InstallPaths tries to make install path resolution as easy as

When you want to install a module, it needs to figure out where to install
things. The nutshell version of how this works is that default installation
locations are determined from ExtUtils::Config, and they may be individually
overridden by using the install_path attribute. An install_base attribute
lets you specify an alternative installation root like /home/foo and prefix
does something similar in a rather different (and more complicated) way.
destdir lets you specify a temporary installation directory like /tmp/install
in case you want to create bundled-up installable packages.
