Building libbonobo.

I'm hoping someone can help...  I'm trying to build libbonobo (actually,
the goal is to eventually build gimp) on my -CURRENT system but I've run
into a slight problem:

===>  Configuring for libbonobo-2.6.0
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c -o root -g
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... no
checking for nawk... nawk
checking whether gmake sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to gnome at [maintainer] and attach the
including the output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might
be a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your
system (e.g. an `ls /var/db/pkg`).

perl -v reports "perl v5.8.2", and I seem to have both the perl-5.6.1_15
and the perl-5.8.2_5 port installed.  I also have p5-XML-Parser-2.34_1
installed as well as intltool-0.30_1.

Does anyone know what's going on and how to fix this?
