This is a known issue, we've been having some problems convincing the CPAN 
indexer about W3C::LinkChecker's availability.

This will hopefully be fixed in the upcoming link checker release; until then,

install it the usual manual way (extract it, then perl Makefile.PL, make 
check, and make install (the last one as root)).
