Help with Module::Install::RTx

Has anyone used this to build an extension to RT? I need some help.

I’d like to release the next version of Statistics with this, but have a
few problems, some of which may be because I’ve never used
Module::Install, nor ExtUtils::MakeMaker.

  1. How do I tell it what goes into the dist? I put in
    lib/RTx, and that seemed to work, but when I put all the files for
    /opt/rt3/local/html in html/RTx it added them to the manifest (Yay), but
    told me the files in just plain html (as opposed to html/RTx) didn’t
    exist. Do I have to have two copies of them?

  2. I’d like all the files to either go to /opt/rt3/share or
    /opt/rt3/local, as decided by the user installing the package, how do I
    do that?

  3. After installing my first cut of the dist, “make uninstall” said that
    it was unsafe and would tell me what it would do, but failed to find the
    packing list in /usr/lib/perl, not too surprising, as the the “make
    install” put the packing list in

Are there any good examples of using this? I couldn’t seem to find
