pkg-plist problem

I'm working on an upgrade to a port.  It installs a bunch of files, some 
in the standard places, a lot in /usr/local/portname.  It also installs a 
perl module in SITE_PERL.

The problem I have is I can't get that perl module to uninstall.  If I 
list it as %%SITE_PERL%%/mach/perl module, it prepends PREFIX to it and 
can't find it.  If I list it in PLIST_FILES instead, it still can't find 

How can I put an entry in PLIST that doesn't install in PREFIX/foo?
