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.

From on 2009-10-13 15:05:57: 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/ in @IN

Doing an 'install HTML::Parser', then trying again to 'install
LWP::UserAgent' resolved the.  Possibly a too-old HTML::Parser on my
part, then?

My perl is:

HTML::HeadParser (which is in HTML::Parser) is a core dependency so this doesn't look like it should be an issue now.

Closing out for now. If there's a need to reopen it, please yell at me.
