Thanks for that.
I suggest the INSTALL file needs changing.
In the section for squeeze add in something like:
"To be able to run 'perl Makefile.PL' you'll need to install
libmodule-install-perl. This module is not needed for LedgerSMB itself
so can be removed after the install."
Technically we should avoid any distro-specific info in the INSTALL. We should call it Module::Install and let people with specific distros search for such packages. For example in Fedora, it's called perl-module-install. Leave the distro-specific stuff to others.
