Also mentioned in that install doc:

  One easy - and strongly recommended - way to take care of all these 
  Perl module dependencies is to install Bundle-W3C-Validator from 
  CPAN.  See the documentation included with it for more details.

...with links to:


...where the latter contains a magic command line for installing all the
required modules:

  perl -MCPAN -e "install Bundle::W3C::Validator"

Providing a complete list of nested dependencies of the required Perl
modules would be a time consuming and almost impossible job due to the
variety of possible configurations out there.  The dependencies change,
depend on your Perl version, and there are tools to take care of them
automatically for you, such as the CPAN command above.

Which version of the validator did you install?

That's most definitely a broken onsgmls.

I guess it would not hurt to send this information to the OpenSP folks,
especially if you built it from source yourself.  But FWIW, and without
knowing much about OS X, pre-packaged OpenSP for OS X seem to be
available from eg.
