FIX: admin/ unusable with old perl versions

In order to try compiling a 3.4 KDE on Solaris, I had to make the attached 
patch to due to a perl version incapable of "foreach my $foo ...".
It barked with
  Missing $ on loop variable at ../../arts/admin/ line XXX.
where XXX in {63, 89, 197} (fixing one-by-one).

Finally, after fixing it told me what I already guessed: "Using perl older 
than version 5.005" ;-) and created the files.  Interestingly, I had to fix 
occurences in both the if($bad_perl) and the else-branch - maybe someone else 
would like to have a look at that again..
