[64bit] perl-XML-SAX doesn't build from source

In an effort to get some practice building perl modules, I tried to 
rebuild perl-XML-SAX from source.  If I install all perl-* packages 
currently in the 64bit distribution except for that one, then the build 
fails at the install stage as follows:

Can't locate XML/SAX.pm in @INC (@INC contains: 
/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/x86_64-cygwin-threads /usr/lib/perl5/5.14 .).
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
Makefile:785: recipe for target `install_sax_pureperl' failed
make: *** [install_sax_pureperl] Error 2

If I understand the error message correctly, it's complaining that it 
can't install XML::Sax because XML::Sax isn't installed.  What am I missing?
