It turns out that that part of the change made Module::Build uninstallable
on 5.8, which makes half of CPAN uninstallable on 5.8. I resolved this by
dropping the Pod::Man dependency (it was only needed for utf8-support on

That said, I would really appreciate it if in the future people would talk
a bit more with their upstreams when incrementing their perl dependency;
this could easily have been not so easy to work around.
