i first got this while running emerge --update --deep --world.
First my emerge --info, then the error, then what I've been able to find out so far....

pw@sweetums ~ $ emerge --pretend gnome-spell

A bit of googling gave me some clues... it looks like I do have the necessary library but there's a perl module path problem:

pw@sweetums ~ $ /usr/bin/perl -e "require XML::Parser"
Can't locate XML/ in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i686-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at -e line 1.

pw@sweetums ~ $ locate XML/
pw@sweetums ~ $ equery belongs /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6/i386-linux/XML/
[ Searching for file(s) /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6/i386-linux/XML/ in *... ]
dev-perl/XML-Parser-2.34 (/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6/i386-linux/XML/

If I re-emerge dev-perl/XML-Parser, that fixes the problem.
I can then emerge gnome-spell successfully.
That was a lucky guess. I want Portage to fix this kind of thing for me :-)
