Right. So while copying lib/ over too would fix this, it would lose the
assurance that we're testing the installed package.
Perhaps a simple 'mkdir $TDIR/lib/' in the smoke runner would work,
so the POD tests would be run against an empty directory?
We'd effectively skip the POD tests for autopkgtest, which I personally
find quite acceptable. (In case it's not clear, they are about checking
documentation syntax and/or function coverage.)
