Thus, adding in Makefile.global:
MAN3PM = $(mandir)/man3
will allow people to change the installation path.

MAN3PM_EXT = "3pm"
I suggest something like:
MAN = ../doc/man/INN__Config.3pm
$(POD2MAN) -s '3pm' -n "INN::Config" $? > $@
SEC3PM = INN__Config.3pm
$(CP_MAN) INN__Config.3pm $D$(MAN3PM)/INN\:\:Config.$(MAN3PM_EXT)
It works pretty well.
The only problem is that we have to add a line in doc/man/Makefile for
each Perl module. But I believe it should not be a big issue :-)
I also tested more advances features like substitutions $(subst __,\:\:,MAN)
or $(foreach ...) but I am not very satisfied with them because they might
not work with every make program.
