Installing baconbird is as simple as:

	perl Makefile.PL
	make install

The first command will generate a Makefile and check BaconBird's dependencies. 
The second command will prepare BaconBird for installation and generate 
documentation, while the third command will install BaconBird.

When using "make install", you have the usual parameters "prefix" and "DESTDIR" 
available to control where your program will be installed and where the 
installation files will be copied to.
