This is not really a step into packaging modules correctly, but a prerequisite. Use Module::Build. It's shiny, it's sexy and it's future proof. It's also backwards compatible, with traditional Makefile.PL generation too. If you have a reason, use ExtUtils::MakeMaker instead.
Module::Build is not backwards compatible, as it doesn't respect the PREFIX= syntax and provides no means to achieve a similar result. So please avoid Module::Build unless you have compelling reasons to use it. ExtUtils::MakeMaker is the default, standard and working solution. If you think you really need Module::Build, create a fully compatible Makefile.PL too.
