One of the recent integrations did away with
cpan/podlators/scripts/pod2man.PL and
cpan/podlators/scripts/pod2text.PL and added pre-built versions in
cpan/podlators/bin.  Core integration then put copies of the .PL files
in utils/ but did not change the location in utils.lst.  This makes it
dodgy whether they will get built and installed correctly on non-Unix
systems and partially undoes the intent of

I think core integration would be easier if we just stuck with .PL
files under cpan/podlators/scripts. That way they'll get built
correctly for the target platform and there should be less
customization to bring a new version into core.  Is there any reason
to prefer distributing Unix-specific scripts under bin/?
