libxml-parser-perl works with the system perl (not a host-perl built by BR).
ExtUtils-MakeMaker is a core Perl module, especially the module which
allows to install other modules.
So, it comes with the system perl package of your distribution.
The Makefile.PL of XML-Parser 2.41 uses ExtUtils-MakeMaker without a
specific version requirement,
so the system ExtUtils-MakeMaker module doesn't require an update.

Could you post the full output of following commands (outside BR environment):
    $ perl -V
    $ perl -e "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker; print qq{ok\n};"

and in BR environment:
    $ make libxml-parser-perl-dirclean
    $ make libxml-parser-perl-configure
