pod2man question

Ting Feng
Hi here,
 
I successfully run through make, make test. However, when I try to run "make install" . I got the following error:
 
./pod2mantest: pod2man: not found
pod2man does not work properly('BasicTest' failed). Looking for another pod2man ...
No working pod2man found. consider installing a new version.
As a workaround, we'll  use a bundled old copy of pod2man.pl.
../../util/pod2man.pl
 
 
Do I need to download a newer version of pod2man? Where to download it?
 
Thanks,

pod2man is part of the mainstream perl distribution.

Hi here,

I found the solution to my own question. Please see comments below. And lots of thanks to Sabahattin and Rich.

Sometimes, however, libssl complains about something called "pod2man" and refuses to install:    No working pod2man found.  Consider installing a new version.
   As a workaround, we'll use a bundled old copy of pod2man.pl.
   sh: util/pod2man.pl: No such file or directory
 
In that case, you must install it manually:     cp libssl.a /usr/local/ssl/lib/
    cp *.a /usr/local/ssl/lib/
    cp *.so* /usr/local/ssl/lib/
    cd include/openssl
    mkdir /usr/include/openssl/
    cp * /usr/include/openssl/
    cp * /usr/local/ssl/include/openssl/
