hook_enable seems to be what I need. This function do the job, but if you have a better advice, feel free to post it ;-)

function mymenu_enable() {
  // check if dhtml menu is installed
  $dhtml = variable_get('dhtml_menu_menus', NULL);
  if ($dhtml != NULL && is_array($dhtml['menu'])) {
    $dhtml['menu']['mymenu'] = 1;
    variable_set('dhtml_menu_menus', $dhtml);
  $theme = variable_get('theme_default','');
  // weight is hardcoded here, OK for my needs but it should be improved
  return db_query("UPDATE {blocks} SET theme='$theme', status=1, weight=-10, region='left', title='My test menu' 
    WHERE module='menu' AND delta ='mymenu';");
