some of this has been discussed on #perl6, so I'd like to give a brief summary only:

While writing neutro (a working module installer, while waiting for
proto/pls, see [1]), and wandering around modules listed on
proto.perl6.org, I started wondering about a universal way to handle
installing them. For now, there are a few different approaches:

   - some modules just supply a lib/ (and sometimes t/) directories
   - some supply a makefile
   - some give Configure.pl and Makefile.in

I'm thinking if there's some one, right way [tm] to do stuff,

There is more than one way to do it.
We should respect a Makefile if present, but install without complaining if none is present.
