perl 5.8.1: perldoc perl fails

Hi Perl maintainer,

using the new experimental Perl 5.8.1 release, the command

$ perldoc perl
Can't open /usr/bin/perl: No such file or directory at /bin/perldoc line
206.

fails to present the Perl manual overview. Calling the manual pages
directly, anything works well:

perldoc perlfun

It seems that perldoc does not find the /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/pods/perl.pod,
because it matches somehow /usr/bin/perl first.

Regards,
Jörg
