The perl bindings use MakeMaker, and thus install into the default
location for the version of perl you're using. I don't overly object to
the Ruby bindings installing somewhere else, but I'd like a way to tell
it "just install with the rest of the ruby modules so I don't have to
jump through hoops to make it work".
