So... what files are you missing? From your post I'm having some confusion as to what you are looking for.
It looks to me like you are trying to package a bunch of open source libraries with your distro. Rather than copying them directly into your package I'd suggest you actually build them and package them that way.
What type(s) of packages are you building? RPM? MSI? Gzipped-Tar? DEBs? Plain brown wrapper boxes?
That statement confuses me even more. If you cannot modify the target system what's the point of this exercise? Are you planning to install into your home directory or is there somewhere else that you have access to that you are installing. Keep in mind that if you are installing into a non-standard place you need to consider what environmental values need to be modified to make it work.
Last parting shot: Exactly how is this Perl related?
