Plugin Installer script can't download dependencies when the TWiki server is behind a firewall. This can be alleviated by using a proxy and setting environment variables but the installer script doesn't invoke $lwp->env_proxy; to load them.
   if( &$check_perl_module( 'LWP' )) {
       $lwp = new LWP::UserAgent();
   &$check_perl_module( 'CPAN' );
