I agree on the not hiding packages in perl_vendor part. Once I
realized that I was missing XML::LibXML, I checked whether it was
available and, finding that it for some reason wasn’t (anymore, I
thought, as I had used it previously with Perl 5.10), went the cpan
route, which led me down the rabbit’s hole.
It’s impossible to know what the perl_vendor package contains unless
you actually install it. Split it up, make XML::LibXML available as a
separate package and add its dependencies.
