Hmm, didn't see that, but I may have already installed it manually
during the bootstrap.  Based on the error message, the problem is that
the in-tree copy is not added to the search path during that command,
and it probably should be; this should be raised upstream.

I just took a look at the Makefile, and here's the command that's failing:

@$(PERL) -MXML::SAX -e "XML::SAX->add_parser(q(XML::SAX::PurePerl))->save_parsers()"

This looks to me like a postinstall operation. Should perl-XML-SAX have a postinstall script to run this?
