+Notes for the perl package maintainers, and others who need to deal with
+these files. Please read debian/cross/README first.

+ Perl upstream version matches the one in the
+* if the upstream version has changed, debian/config.debian exits with
+ a message indicating the need for refreshing the files
+* this can also be triggered by creating debian/cross/<arch>/REFRESH; the
+ contents of this file are then shown when debian/config.debian bails out

+ Configure arguments in debian/config.debian
