in reply to Installing lots of things in different places with MakeMaker

MakeMaker wants to install things under defined directories. You can't just start making things up. Since a template isn't executable, I'd put them under the lib directory, like lib/templates/mumble.

    Unfortunately my requirements are pretty rigid in this regard. Any possible ways to get around this limitation of MakeMaker?

      It is not a limitation of MakeMaker. You use MakeMaker to install perl programs and modules, not as a generic install system. Use DEB or RPM or something.
      Assuming you have control of all environments this will be installed, why not symlink /usr/local/templates to lib/templates/mumble (as merlyn suggests)?
