Perl has become more finicky with later versions.

Earlier versions of Perl allowed multiple arguments to the  undef  operator.
More recent versions allow just a single argument.

You could simply edit the  latex2html  script at the lines mentioned:
 2771, 3076, 4404
to fix the syntax.  Alternatively, it should be fixed already in later
versions of LateX2HTML.
