Except you're fetching the files using File::Fetch, whose primary method 
of downloading is LWP::UserAgent, which is part of libwww-perl, which 
depends on HTML::Parser.

So the odds are you installed an HTML parser already - or at least, if 
you're behind an HTTP proxy either you did or Alien::Dojo is broken 
since sans LWP File::Fetch can't handle proxies at all ...
