Error in check on line 703 using Mac OS X

Using Mac OS X 10.3.7, I installed all the necessary dependencies and  
configured apache appropriately. It was all pretty straightforward,  
although quite lengthy for the simple purpose of validating HTML  
locally. I had to work through a couple of snags, those were mostly  
dependencies of dependencies.

As mentioned in your install doc (at  
http://validator.w3.org/docs/install.html) "Help us improve this  
installation guide by sending us your feedback  if you install the  
validator on your local system!" Well, here are some of those  
dependencies of dependencies I had to hunt down:

HTML::Tagset required by HTML::Parser

URI required by libwww-perl

Compress::Zlib required by libwww-perl

Now I'd like to ask for help. When I access the following URL, I get  
the following results:


Result: Can't use an undefined value as a symbol reference at  
/opt/local/share/w3c-markup-validator/check line 703.

Please help me with this. This seems to be the result I get whenever  
any HTML file is successfully retrieved for validation. Even when using  
the upload interface and uploading the index.html from the validator's  
web interface, I get the same result.

In case it is relevant, I don't believe OpenSP is working. I believe  
OpenSP has some dependencies which I don't know about. Here is a list  
of what are most likely missing functions:

~$ onsgmls
dyld: onsgmls Undefined symbols:
Trace/BPT trap

If anyone on this list can confirm for me that this is an issue that I  
should send to OpenJade, please let me know, and I will do so. Once I  
do that, I will send a full list of Mac OS X install instruction for  
your validator so that you can provide them to Mac OS X users.

Thanks for the online validator!
P.S. I'm not a member of the mailing list, so please remember to reply  
to my address in addition to any other recipients you feel are relevant  
(like the mailing list.)
