To install the validator, did you build and install custom Perl  
modules in /System/Library/Perl? Possibly the SU has upgraded some of  
the Encode-related modules, which are now clashing with the custom  
modules.

You might try Validator-SAC (although it is still at 0.8.3). The  
latest Software Update has not broken it (on un-modified 10.5.6).  
Validator-SAC comes with all the necessary extra Perl modules in the  
Application bundle -- no system files are ever modified. This  
architecture tends to make it more stable. It can be easily setup as a  
Web Service too (See "Advanced Topics").
