A problem with swishspider

Dear SWISH-E users,

I hope that somebody of you with experience will be able
to help us with a strange installation problem. 

We are trying to install SWISH 1.3.1 on our Web Server.
The installation itself passes OK. However, when we try to
run it:

swish-e -c user.config

we get an error message that "HTML/Parse.pm" demanded in @INC
in "swishspider" is absent.

Really, we see that under "HTML" directory under "site-perl" (where it 
looks for include files) there is a file "Parser.pm" and not 
"Parse.pm". The simple change in the name in @INC doesn't help, 
because there is  no function "parse_html" called in "swishspider"
in that another file.

Our Perl version is "5.004_04 built for irix-n32". All additional relevant 
packages are installed - libwww-perl (v5.36), MIME-Base64 (v 2.11), 
HTML-Parser (v. 2.22), libnet (v. 1.0606), Digest-MD5 (v.2.02).

The full text of error message is:
----

I will be very grateful for any idea what to try to do.
