I haven't got the faintest idea what consequences patching Perl in this
area could have. Why Perl (or rather ExtUtils::MakeMaker) wants to read
the _old_ .packlist for installation of a _new_ package in the first place
is not really clear.
I guess input from Johnny Lam regarding this would be welcome.
