Best practice for Perl 5 is TMTOWTDI, which is fairly frustrating.
Module::Install is really clever but no-one seems to be using it. So I
Module::Build can be induced to auto-create a Makefile.PL (although I've
managed to break that ;-), which Debian perl-policy seems to require.
So IMNAAHO*, Build.PL is the way to go.

Doing is a good way to make a statement and git gives you all the
flexibility you should need.
