So I did, and the error message then has changed into:
"Can't locate object method "new" via package "File::Temp" at /usr/ 
lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi/SGML/Parser/ 
OpenSP.pm line 65."

I just have looked into the directories, the proposed code snipped  
above put out into the Apache error log -- and you know what?
There indeed have been lying around some older modules of CGI.pm and  
File::Temp.pm in my filesystem! I have also locally installed Movable  
Type (newest version), my blogging software, and this MT installation  
provided these older perl modules.
Since I have copied my newer modules from my system's perl directory  
into the local install directory of Movable Type, the validator check  
script now also runs with mod_perl enabled. :-)

Thanks Ville for this needful hint and help! I am very happy about  
it :-)
