dh_perl should remove them automatically (or more precise: pass the
parameter to not create them), so my guess is you have an "old"
debian/rules (i.e. without using dh) and you're not calling dh_perl
there. Or you have a very old debhelper version, not sure when this
feature was introduced in dh_perl.

I haven't seen it for quite a few years now :)

("./Build ... create_packlist=0" prevents M::B from creating the
.packlist file, but you shouldn't need to do that manually.)
