I think that's because XML::Parser has an external (not CPAN-)
dependency on libexpat (whose package will bring together the missing
header file). Many CPAN build scripts do a poor job detecting that
external requirements are missing and producing comprehensible
messages on these situations.
If that is the case, installing libexpat via apt-get itself should be
enough for the build to proceed next time.
