It is common to only track manually written code in VCS, and only 
include autogenerated files when releasing tarballs.

You need to get your hands a bit more dirty if you want to use the git 
sources (hint: man Dist::Zilla), or use released tarballs which 
corresponds better to documentated install routines.

Hope that helps,

 - Jonas
