squid3 FTBFS due to missing --name arg to pod2man

Bug Description

squid3 fails with:

dh_install -psquid3 --sourcedir=/«PKGBUILDDIR»/debian/tmp
cp: cannot stat '/«PKGBUILDDIR»/debian/tmp/usr/share/man/man8/basic_db_auth.8': No such file or directory
dh_install: cp --reflink=auto -a /«PKGBUILDDIR»/debian/tmp/usr/share/man/man8/basic_db_auth.8 debian/squid3//usr/share/man/man8/ returned exit code 1
make: *** [binary-install/squid3] Error 2
/usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk:213: recipe for target 'binary-install/squid3' failed

caused by helpers/auth_basic/DB/config.test failure during configure phase, which filters out the DB basic auth.

The error in config.test is caused by a missing --name argument to pod2man:

IO::File=IO(0x24d5e30) around line 1: No name given for document
POD document had syntax errors at /usr/bin/pod2man line 71.

This also affects helpers/external_acl/SQL_session/config.test and helpers/log_daemon/DB/config.test

Since Perl 5.20.2-4 pod2man behavior changed for pipes and now the --name parameter must be included (or --errors set to 'pod', 'stderr', or 'none'). As per Debian [1] and pod2man change log page [2]:

"[Pod::Man] Attempt to detect if the input came from a pipe and therefore has a completely unhelpful (and nonreproducible) source file name, and diagnose this as an error. Document that the name option (--name to pod2man) is required when processing POD source from standard input. (Debian Bug#777405)"

Daniel, thanks for sponsoring this.

I apologize, the main discussion for Squid FTBFS was being done in LP: #1496223 and I forgot to add here the piece that this patch actually requires libecap2 gcc5 transition for it to work. I also missed the fact that the bot subscribed ubuntu-sponsors, which was not my intention - at least until we decide to either keep the current squid3 version or merge a newer from Debian.

What is the appropriate action: should I remove the patch from here or just drop the patch flag+patch checkbox? If the latter then someone will have to unsubscribe ubuntu-sponsors.

libecap3 was been deleted. I have created LP: #1504200 to handle the gcc5 transition. After it gets sponsored it should be ok to apply this fix.
