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...
