  installhtml: set default podpath to './lib'

Previously (as reported nine years ago by Nick Clark in what is now
https://github.com/Perl/perl5/issues/11859), the default setting for
'podpath' was '.'.  This meant that, unless you explicitly set a
colon-delimited list of directories as the value for 'podpath', all
files containing POD under '.' were HTML-ified and installed.  The only
directories that always should have HTML-ized POD installed are 'lib'
and 'pod' itself.

Invoking 'installhtml' like the following should now DTRT:

        export HTMLDIR=$HOMEDIR/tmp/installhtml && \
        ./perl -Ilib ./installhtml    \
            --htmldir=$HTMLDIR     \
            --htmlroot=$HTMLDIR    \
            --splithead=pod/perlipc     \
            --recurse \
            --verbose 2>&1 | tee installhtml.log
