./installhtml is now unacceptably slow.

Whilst the target install.html is marked as "experimental" on Unix*, it
seems that installhtml is part of the regular install target in the Win32
makefiles, so will be common.

On a fast Unix system, installhtml as of perl 5.14.0 was tolerable. (About as
annoying as installman)

On the same system, installman in smoke-me/installhtml (blead is broken)
took 36 minutes.

This may be due to the removal of a caching layer in pod2html.
Whatever the cause, it really needs investigation and mitigation prior
to perl 5.16.0

  Few things get finished. At some point it *is* going to be cheaper to
  "go bust" as a side effect of starting again.
