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

As far as I can say, "Please look at issues carefully",
i.e. removing devel/p5-VCP just hide the issue.
Of course, it is better to fix p5-XML-AutoWriter.

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.

From quick view of various bulk build resuit, it may be happened
with builtin X11 (I'm using X11_TYPE=modular).
