	Grief - I hope we can solve these with auto-detection etc. in master
post branch. It would be worth adding your fixes to the wiki if you can
maintain that - to help other Ubuntu-ites :-)

	Ok - well, that is a great bug to fix in the perl script itself ;-)
it'd be lovely to have 'make_install' work again. IMHO we should unlink
before we copy - so we don't tread through symlinks by mistake.

	So - basically 'linkoo' should be run - which creates a symlink tree to
the build directories, so then you only have to run 'build' inside the
module you are hacking in, and automagically the install set is updated
(by the power of symlinks).

	So - hopefully you're all good for incremental builds :-)
