You need the perl-XML-Parser package.  You can install perl modules
either by package name or by specifying them by module:

    yum install "perl(XML::Parser)"

I don't know if yum-utils is available for CentOS or not, but it
includes yum-builddep which can be used to install the build
dependencies for rpms.  As it's unlike that the build deps changed
between 2.16.1 and 2.16.3, you should be able to say:

    yum-builddep gnome-screensaver

and get the deps for building installed.

You really ought to use rpm to do this.  That likely means rebuilding
the current rpm with the updated gnome-screensaver.  Otherwise you'll
either have two version on your system or you'll overwrite one or
you'll just remove the rpm version and leave any packages that require
that rpm wondering what's going on.
