The standard perl package probably doesn't contain extra modules like  
XML::Parser. Thus, you have to install it additionally. I'm not sure if  
someone has created a package file for it but you can try to find it on  
the crux homepage in the "port section" or just search in your local ports  
tree for "xml" related stuff?!

Hope that helps ;D
