That's an interesting observation, but it could lead to some 
inconsistencies.  We also offer the cpan method in BLFS and that 
installs automatically in /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl so if a user mixed 
the methods, the files would be in different places.

I note that at least one distro (Mint) puts the files in /usr/lib/perl5, 
and not a subdirectory.
