Okay... then maybe p5-XML-AutoWriter should be removed? It's still
been broken for years. (Or maybe there's an update for it...?)

It happens reliably on amd64 on -current with pbulk. ("It" means a
pile of html files aren't installed.) Unfortunately that's three
things different from your environment and any of them could be at
fault. My guess though would be that there's something missing from
the clean environment in pbulk that it needs to handle those files.
