I'm not the author here, but my guess is that Build.PL was renamed so
that Makefile.PL would be the preferred version, perhaps due to a bug
with some interaction with Module::Build that they're investigating.

I think that Debian packages are all built by Makefile.PL anyway
(regardless of the presence of Build.PL, unless it is the only one of
the two present, or unless we use an override to change the
buildsystem)... so this means the change shouldn't affect us at all.

Of course, this stuff requires closer inspection, and I've been out of
the packaging game for awhile now :)
