Setting bespoke permissions on files installed by Makemaker

Mak3r has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying to get multiple people to update an installed PERL by using group permissions in UNIX and the usual Makefile created out of ExUtils::MakeMaker

On a plain install, Makemaker ignores the umask and the PERM_RW variable in the Makefile and creates the installed file with the permissions

24 -r--r--r-- 1 UID GROUP 23536 May 01 15:23 Ftp.pm

This is plainly wrong for my purpose. How do I get makemaker to install files with the following permissions:

24 -rw-rw-r-- 1 UID GROUP 23536 May 01 15:23 Ftp.pm

So that they're usable by members of GROUP?
