compilation problemsby morgon (Priest)

morgon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi, I have some suprising problems trying to compile software for openwrt.
I am on Debian testing and my perl is 5.26.1.
When I try to compile the openwrt-toolchain it fails at one point because a perl-script gets generated that contains this:
Unfortunately my perl dies here with "Unescaped left brace in regex is illegal here in regex".
I decided to try an older perl and installed 5.20.3 but the problem persisted.
So I tried the even older perls 5.12.5 and 5.10.1 but to my surprise the attempt to install then via perlbrew failed in the tests.
So it seems the openwrt-toolchain cannot deal with the behaviour of newer perls while the installation of old perls fails...
Before I now set up a VM with an older debian-version, I wanted to see if anybody has any other idea on how to proceed.
