PERLINC in gnc-fq-*

A user complained in gnucash-users that gnc-fq-check failed on him because of the line "use lib /System/Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level". The directory gets inserted at build time from running PERLINCL=`$PERL -MConfig -e 'print $Config{"archlibexp"}'` in configure. 

What's the point of that? That directory is already in @INC on the build machine, but if the user doesn't have the exact same version of perl installed, it will raise an exception because the directory won't exist.
