Debian Wheezy, also referred to, I think, as Raspbian. All cards have had the OS created by the same process. I hadn't heard of checkinstall. Thanks - I'll investigate.

Update: I don't think checkinstall is going to help me, although I'll bear it in mind. The problem is that there's something - a file, some hidden variable or something else - that I'm not copying and that therefore I don't know how to put into checkinstall. If I knew what to copy, I can imagine situations where it might help. At the moment, I just want to know what it is I'm failing to copy.

    Well, checkinstall -D 'make install' should have made full package of perl, with everything that make install was going to install. It can be checked using dpkg-deb -c file.deb. Maybe the problem is not caused by perl itself, but by some package that was installed on the building machine as perl dependency, but not on the others.
    Sorry if my advice was wrong.
