Makefile.PL writes the Makefile for the Data::UUID library. It is configured with the options "--state-storage-directory" and "--default-umask". Unless given, default values are used. In any case the values are printed for confirmation.
Additionally, the usual EU::MM options are processed, see "Using Attributes and Parameters" in ExtUtils::MakeMaker.
