If you use ExtUtils::MakeMaker or Module::Build, it's fiddly. People
tend to use different approaches, as you've noticed.
Module::Install makes this easier - look for "install_script" in its
documentation. Although I'd use ExtUtils::MakeMaker for simple
distributions, I'd probably use Module::Install for problems EUMM
copes badly with, such as yours.
