It seems I mixed up two programs. The program I started to
test if libnet-dns-perl is installed correctly does not
use Net::DNS at all.

Cut and paste and autowrap, a dangerous couple.  ;)

$DESTDIR wasn't used anywhere and did no harm,
but I removed it now.

Ups. I am looking for some place to hide right now. Argh.
You won't tell anybody about it, won't you?  ;)

Thanks a lot for your help! I am building a fixed version right now.

Done. But after fixing all my stupid errors one
problem remains: There is still no dependency in the
resulting .deb file.

Everyone that wants to help, please read my original mail.
