Bug Description

When used to build packages of perl modules, debuild creates a .packlist and perllocal.pod files

An example:
wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/K/KR/KRISTINA/MongoDB-0.44.tar.gz
tar xvzf MongoDB-0.44.tar.gz
cd MongoDB-0.44/
dh-make-perl
[... some fixes to dependencies in debian/control reuquired ...]

debuild -us -uc
[... lot of stuff here but no errors ...]

and here is a part of the lintian result:
[...]
E: libmongodb-perl: perl-module-in-core-directory usr/lib/perl/5.10/
W: libmongodb-perl: package-installs-perllocal-pod usr/lib/perl/5.10/perllocal.pod
E: libmongodb-perl: perl-module-in-core-directory usr/lib/perl/5.10/perllocal.pod
E: libmongodb-perl: package-installs-packlist usr/lib/perl5/auto/MongoDB/.packlist
[...]

Same errors happens with a apt-get sourced perl module...
