I took your advice and re-installed Perl. 
The make (sect 6.11) progressed now much further. However, it still stopped 
with an error on this line:

/sources/glibc-build/ undefined reference to `_Oumoddi3_internal'

To check the,  I extracted the symbol list from it.
Here is part of the symbol list, which I created with 'nm libc.so6'
001143ac b otimer.1
                   U _Oumoddi3_internal
0005e210 T __overflow
As can be seen, _Oumoddi3_internal is not defined
I wonder what program would be responsible for generating a valid reference 
for this symbol ? 
Googling for Oumoddi3 gives no result, however umoddi3 yields some info 
related to undefined umoddi3, but they are all well over my head.
