There's a few issues going on here. First, support for PREFIX is 
pretty crappy in ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Far better to use 

perl Makefile.PL INSTALL_BASE=/postgres/zz

Second, there was no way to signify a architecture nuetral place 
for the bucardo.schema file to live in. Thus, we hacked up 
the Makefile via Makefile.PL to put it in /usr/local/share (which 
is most correct place for it, but it has no macro like some of 
the other locations). So I think the answer for the moment is 
to change the three lines inside of Makefile.PL that reference 

This may break things for distro packagers, but I'll have to 
wait for someone with more knowledge about that than me to 
weigh in.
