Xscreensaver 5.15-2 doesn't load images for some screensavers (eg. Carousel). Command "xscreensaver -verbose" reports the absence of a perl library:

Can't locate HTTP/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/LWP/ line 14.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/LWP/ line 14.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/xscreensaver-getimage-file line 53.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/xscreensaver-getimage-file line 53.

This file (HTTP/ is inside "perl-http-message" package, but this package isn't in xscreensaver dependencies list.

Additional info:
* xscreensaver 5.15-2
* perl-http-message 6.02-1
* perl-libwww 6.03-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install xscreensaver
2. In a terminal, run "xscreensaver-demo" and select Carousel.
3. Click "Preview" button. Images doesn't appear, and some error messages are reported in terminal.
