Continuing to the comment on 3/4, I wonder if it would be a lot
simpler and more maintainable if you replaced 1/4 to 3/4 with a
smaller patch to the top-level Makefile to teach it to munge
arbitrary path/to/foo.perl to path/to/foo the same way as we do to
other path/tool.perl that are known to the top-level Makefile
(similarly, another target to install the resulting path/to/foo at
an arbitrary place).  Then do something like

                $(MAKE) -C ../.. \
                $(MAKE) -C ../.. \

in this step.
