The Map Scroller screen saver appears to require perl-lwp-protocol-https to work. It would be helpful if it was added as an optional dependency.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Launch xscreensaver-settings from a terminal
2) Attempt to observe a preview of the Map Scroller screen saver
3) Observe that the screen saver does not function, and error output has been printed to the terminal advising you to install packages from cpan
4) Install perl-lwp-protocol-https using pacman
5) Attempt to launch Map Scroller again, and observe that it functions
