executable scripts in debian/

I need to run a script as part of debian/rules.  I can't rely on it
being executable when unpacked, since dpkg-source doesn't preserve the

I can explicitly call its interpreter (Perl in this case):
    /usr/bin/perl debian/my-script ....
or I can set it executable each time:
    chmod +x debian/my-script
    debian/my-script ...

Is there a preferred approach?  Thanks.
