You might be right, which is why i didn't come screaming to this list but went 
searching elsewhere first, had i not found the answer i'd probably restarted 
without 4.2.2. However i found a solution and posted it to this list (for the 
benefit of those experiencing the same problem).
Then i ask a simple question wether or not installing the 4.2.2 compiler 
instead of the 4.1.2 could be cullprit. In my opinion it shouldn't matter 
which compiler i choose to install on the system because the one in the 
toolchain is used to compile perl. I did however get an error and i'm 
wondering wether i should revise this opinion ... i'm not asking or expecting 
anyone to deal with non-existing problems.

Regards, Danny.
