It turns out that I did make a mistake while inserting the debian diff from
1.2.21. Somehow the included patches disappeared. I must have deleted the
debian/patches directory for some reason but I can't remember when or why...
Anyway, while trying to make something work, I noticed that debian/rules did
not use Makefile.PL. So I added the appropriate instruction and I ended up
with the deb file I was complaining about.
Eventually, I got curious about how the generic install process works. I
restarted from scratch then I tried to follow the INSTALL instructions:
and, in directory blib I had exactly the same files that were in the deb file.
No wonder then that I ended up with an incomplete installation.
The debian patches create a number of Makefiles which are not created at all
So what did I miss?
The trouble with common sense is that it is so uncommon.
