Would a "make clean" have prevented this?

Yes, the solution was to remove the old file
/usr/local/include/patchlevel.h . After that, I could build the perl 5.8.5

I guess the reason why -stable users are experiencing the problem is, that
they often have old upgraded systems which have stale files lying around.
