Subject: Testing dependency on HTML::Parser

libwww-perl-5.833's base/message-charset test script depends on HTML::Parser, preventing (non-forced) installation of this package unless HTML::Parser has been previously installed. HTML::Parser should be added to libwww-perl as a dependency or the base/message-charset tests should be skipped if it is not present.

http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/GAAS/libwww-perl-5.833/META.yml do list HTML::Parser as a dependency. The source of this is the PREREQ_PM entries in the Makefile.PL.

That's odd, then... Immediately prior to filing the bug report, I attempted to update LWP and the install failed due to: base/message-charset......1/21 Can't locate auto/HTML/Parser/utf8_mode.al in @IN C (@INC contains: ../blib/lib ../blib/arch ../. /System/Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwi n-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thre ad-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Library/Perl /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.6/da rwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Network/Library/Perl /Syst em/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/Ext ras/5.8.6 /Library/Perl/5.8.1 .) at /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.6/darwin-thr ead-multi-2level/HTML/Parser.pm line 82 Doing an 'install HTML::Parser', then trying again to 'install LWP::UserAgent' resolved the.
