How, i must be tired this morning :-(
Don't understand this message too.

As i was unclear, here comes explanations on changes:

Problem description:
   Installation of Perl modules fails on some platforms.
   My experience is that if INSTALLSITELIB=$INSTALLPRIVLIB/site_perl
   then modules are installed under your_prefix/lib/wml/perl.
   Otherwise, these modules are installed into INSTALLSITELIB.
   Don't know why.

Before wml-1.7a304: in wml_common/Makefile.in
   $(MAKE) pure_install PREFIX=$(libdir)/perl
The pure_ prefix is to skip documentation generation and installation.

Now: in wml_common/Makefile.in
   $(MAKE) pure_perl_install PREFIX=$(libdir)/perl

This line is a synonym for your suggested
   $(MAKE) pure_install PREFIX=$(libdir)/perl INSTALLDIRS=perl
