I should mention, I found a solution to this, based on a clue from :
Essentially, use the system ExtUtils::MakeMaker by setting the include path with
PERL5LIB to check the system folder first, when runing dh-make-perl:
PERL5LIB=<path to system libs>:$PERL5LIB dh-make-perl <options> <dir>
This creates a .deb without the perllocal.pod file that then installs without
conflicting with other packages. I have no idea how that works, just that it does.
