perl-xml-parser is the correct dependency. The Perl module `XML::Parser` is used during the build and if you don't have perl-xml-parser, `configure` complains that it needs `XML::Parser` for its own `intltool`. I added it to `makedepends`.

Also, note that the installed files contain no perl scripts and no perl modules.

I just checked all of the installed files. None of them are Perl scripts or modules. Maybe, this dependency was relic from sometime long ago ... I will not re-add this dependency until I know for sure where it is or may be used and for what purpose.

extra/perl-xml-simple seems a suitable replacement (at least it doesn't complain during the building step).

For now, I have simply removed the perlxml makedepends. I don't know where it went / what its replacement is.

"Dependency `perlxml' of `xvidcap' does not exist."

Hi, I have not used this in a long time. And hardly then. So I do not know it very well. I am disowning it so that someone that is using it can maintain it. Sorry for not being more helpful :|

I can´t put this program to work, where is the ppm2mpeg.sh? :/

This was a crumby version which doesn't really support video codecs other than a .xwd to ffmpeg trick.
