in reply to perldoc Bold, Italic etc

Try to

export PERLDOC=-oterm
or define an alias like
builtin alias perldoc="perldoc -oterm "
Assure, that Pod::Perldoc::ToTerm is installed and accessible. If that does not work, try -oansi instead of -oterm.

Edit: fixed alias definition taking into account that some distros come with an alias() function.

    This is surely a valid workaround, but IMHO a system's Perl should do all this out of the box.

    So he should really try perldoc -D on both versions to see what changed and file a bug report if necessary.
