If you're using Module-Build, you can try to copy the custom logic I have for 
it for my XML::Grammar modules:


I'm using it to install stuff like XSLT .xslt files, RELAX NG-based .rng 
schema files and other XML static stuff. Feel free to borrow and adapt this 
stuff - it's licensed under the MIT/X11 Licence -

Also look at:


Note that if you're planning to use Module-Install (or plain-old ExtUtils-
MakeMaker ), then I won't be able to help you without investing some time on 
figuring out how to do that. If you're still interested in that, maybe try the 
dedicated mailing lists for this, searching for prior art on the CPAN, or 
irc.perl.org or maybe #perl on irc.freenode.net .
