Switch to Pod::Parser instead of Pod::Text

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #279251 +++

I am cloning this bug because it now affects Fedora 9 without adding any third party packages. The original bug expired because Fedora 7 End-of-Life.

Description of problem:

Pod::Text no longer derives from Pod::Parser so the method 'interpolate' does
not exist.  As near as I can tell, this is the only method used in cpan2rpm, so
Pod::Text can be changed to Pod::Parser in the two places it appears.  This is
what I did locally and it now works for me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Run cpan2rpm for some module (any will do...)
Actual results:

-- module: /var/cache/cpan/build/libwww-perl-5.808-baHtIL --
Metadata retrieval
Can't locate object method "interpolate" via package "Pod::Text" at
/usr/bin/cpan2rpm line 522.
-- Done --

Expected results:

No failure from above.

Additional info:
I have added a patch. It works for me...
Comment 1 John Poelstra 2008-09-19 11:38:35 EDT
changed version to "9"
Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-09-22 03:35:38 EDT
The last release of cpan2rpm was in 2005. I suggest using cpanspec.
Comment 3 Benny Amorsen 2008-09-22 10:58:05 EDT
Ok, can we either get rid of the package or fix it though?
Comment 4 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-09-23 04:17:10 EDT
It can be build and possibly some people still use it.

Thougths from perl-sig?
