after an update on Jan 17, 2012 perl-libwww does not have perl-http-message in dependencies although it is needed for LWP::UserAgent, LWP::Protocol and others. This causes it fail to compile.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
perl-libwww 6.03-1

* config and/or log files etc.

# perl -e 'require LWP::UserAgent;'
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 10.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/LWP/ line 10.
Compilation failed in require at -e line 1.

Steps to reproduce:

install perl-libwww, remove unrequired perl-http-message and try to require anything from
