Description Pickering, Timothy 1999-06-06 12:00:20 UTC
i have a module off of CPAN that want to use pod2text,
however the perl package that comes with RH 6.0 doesn't have
it.  my workaround was to grab the .src.rpm for perl, change
the .spec file so that /usr/bin/pod2text was included in the
file list, and then build and install.

I have verified that the perl-5.00503-2 as shipped with Red Hat 6.0
does not have the pod2text utility and also is not enabled in the perl
src rpm. But it is included with the source and as such should be
compiled also.
