perl/Makefile.PL: detect MakeMaker versions incompatible with DESTDIR
It appears that ExtUtils::MakeMaker versions older than 6.11 do not implement the DESTDIR mechanism. So add a test to the generated perl.mak to detect when DESTDIR is used along with a too old ExtUtils::MakeMaker and abort with a message suggesting the use of NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER.
