fix typo in Pod::Perldoc v3.17
There's a bug in the perl module Pod::Perldoc (v3.17) that ships with Perl 5.16.1 that causes "perldoc" to fail under certain conditions. My observation has been that the "-i" flag (for case insensitive matching) reliability triggers it). In such cases, the following error message results:
"Can't locate object method "Is_dos" via package "Pod::Perldoc" at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.16.1/Pod/Perldoc.pm line 1424".
Both the cause and the solution are quite simple and summarized succinctly in the CPAN bug report to which I linked. Attached is the patch from CPAN, with the only difference being the paths in the patch header -- I modified it to include the Perl version for maintenance purposes.
Should be fine in last stable
