There were objections from Christoph with two alternative suggestions:

* change the directory structure for all perl version to be the
  sam: I'm not sure we what cans of worms we open there, and I don't
  feel comfortable with that.

* generating PLIST from .packlist files: I'm not too familiar with that,
  and Christoph didn't mention more - I guess it would be a help if it
  could be done.

Maybe we should go for your (Manuel) solution, and generate parts of the
PLIST automatically later when we know more about that way?
