Directory Structure Recommendationsby Ossie (Novice)

Ossie has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
As a newbie to Perl I'm seeking guidance about directory structure that is good practice, as I've not yet found it in the various documents I've looked at.
My primary objective is to run a program (Mapivi) under Perl on a Windows PC (I'll write my own additional code at later stage).
I've successfully installed Strawberry Perl and downloaded Mapivi together with other necessary files such as Perl/Tk and Image-MetaData-JPEG.
So what (if any) additional directories should I create to hold the various files when I unpack them, prior to running the usual sequence of Makefile & Test & Install, and should the resulting files be put into specific directories?
If there are existing publications covering this then I'd be grateful if you point me in their direction, as well as giving the benfit of your experience.
Related follow-on questions may then be about what has to be manually added to PATH and @INC
