Gnome install script fails with vte and a missing XML::Parser

Followed the instruction in the FAQ for installing Gnome on CRUX. Exellent
guidelines but the install script fails with vte:

[stuff deleted]
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is
required for intltool
=======> ERROR: Building '/usr/ports/contrib/vte/vte#0.13.0-1.pkg.tar.gz'
-- Packages where install failed
Press <ENTER> to continue ..

So somehow it is related to Perl not knowing where its XML::Parser is:

bash-3.1# /usr/bin/perl -e "require XML::Parser"
Can't locate XML/ in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at -e line 1.

The only found is in another subdirectory, not mention in @INC:

bash-3.1# find /usr -name -print

Could someone please guide me as to how to
a) fix this Perl XML::Parser problem?
b) run the rest of the Gnome script or should I just rerun it?
