Fixing PodToHTML for Gentoo

[ #32737 ]

Michael Cummings was working on some Gentoo packages and discovered the Pod::Find showed up in both PodToHTML (an ancient module by the late Nick Ing-Simmons), and Pod::Parser. He filed a bug report for PodToHTML in RT about five weeks ago, but nobody was there to see it. Yesterday, He wrote to cpan-discuss asking where he should inquire about a fix for PodToHTML.

I responded that maybe Gentoo should just drop this ancient stuff, but apparently something from Audrey uses it. Adam Kennedy said one of us (PAUSE people) would fix it, so I did. PodToHTML now has a new version online with its own Pod::Find. Don't use it for anything, because it's dead, dead, dead.

Maybe Adam and I should just do Perl support. This sort of response from either of us isn't all that uncommon. :)
