Replying to that message -- I believe being a perl module it should be
installed as a perl module. Using a CPAN shell...

For determining most of the thing, perl's Config hash is the right place
to look to. While there is aclocal stuff for many languages, there is NO
aclocal stuff for perl. For ArchZoom, both autoconf and
Module::Build/ExtUtils::MakeMaker may be needed, but axp and arch-perl
are both installable with just Module::Build/ExtUtils::MakeMaker.

I'd also suggest changing the layout and names a bit. If it should be
CPAN-friendly, all the modules should be Arch::<something>, in order not
to increase CPAN enthropy too much. When released on CPAN, people can
install it by just "cpan -i Arch::<whatever>" (where <whatever> is Zoom,
AXP, Way or Bundle)
