The LWP requirement not being documented is an oversite.  I'll look into

But as for your comment about other "undocumented necessities," would
you care to elaborate on that?

There are not configuration parameters that that affect that.  Perhaps
you have incorrectly installed LWP.  Try this from you command line
(making the proper substitutions):

/path/to/perl /path/to/swishspider /tmp/moo http://whatever/url/

If this works (should create /tmp/moo.response, /tmp/moo.contents and
/tmp/moo.links) from the command line, then something is amiss. 
Otherwise, please double check your Perl install.
