Usually such error suggests you need to use 'perl-cleaner' after perl upgrade, but last perl upgrade was quite awhile ago.
Is dev-perl/XML-Parser emerged ?
Sorry for the delay. I tried to install plog to answer your question but failed
(installed first paludis which required hours until I noticed it doesn't contain
plog so that I installed paludis-tools manually which fails on "import paludis"
in Python code). Grml, Debian is so much easier ...

I called perl-cleaner in the past after major pearl update.

It was not (as /var/log/emerge.log reveals instead of plog). After installing
it (which I did already yesterday before my system update) gnome-mime-data could be build.
Please note that I have
in /etc/make.conf which probably enables i18n support.
gnome-mime-data depends on intltool which runtime depends on dev-perl/XML-Parser. There is no reason it would be absent from your system under normal circumstances. From a pure dependency POV, if I didn't overlook something, this report is invalid. Maybe it's a bug in paludis ?
Forwarding to paludis maintainer.
