you'll find things run much more smoothly if you use the ports tree when
possible, and failing that, use the CPAN module that comes with the perl that
shipped with your OS.
# cd /usr/ports && make search key=p5-libwww
# perl -MCPAN -e 'install LWP'
# perl -MCPAN -e shell
you didn't say how you installed libwww, or where you installed it from.
Using the CPAN module will help avoid version mismatches and dependency
problems (mostly). Without looking at your setup, it's hard to say for sure
what's wrong, although it looks like update-nessusrc isn't finding something
it's expecting (or there's a typo in the script - have you tried "perl -c
It's more likely to be a problem with the specific thing you're trying to do,
than with your Perl installation as a whole.
