bitbake.conf: drop pod2man from hosttools
pod2man writes the current date into manpages, and while later versions of it respect SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH and use that instead, earlier versions do not. This was found to cause reproducibility issues. This patch replaces host version of pod2man with one from perl-native. [YOCTO #13755] Signed-off-by: Alexander Kanavin <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
