Thank you so very much!
You were right, it is a solution to change to the right order by manually

g++  --shared  -Wl,--enable-auto-import -Wl,--export-all-symbols
-Wl,--stack,8388608 -Wl,--enable-auto-image-base -L/usr/local/lib
-L/usr/lib/e2fsprogs UUID.o -luuid -o blib/arch/auto/UUID/UUID.dll

So my next question is: Do you know what parameters are needed so that the
Makefile will be created with the right settings (without manually
executing g++ after the crashed first make)?

Because creating it with:
perl Makefile.PL LIBS=-L/usr/lib/e2fsprogs

results to the not functioning g++ line without ... -L/usr/lib/e2fsprogs
UUID.o -luuid ... (which was the reason for (unfortunately) false editing
of the Makefile).

At the beginning I can even see:
MakeMaker ARGV: (q[LIBS=-L/usr/lib/e2fsprogs])
#     LIBS => [q[-luuid]]

But it does not seem to affect the g++ call.

And by the way, in the PostgreSQL posts dllwrap was used with
-Wl,-Bstatic,-luuid,-Bdynamic so when do I need the -Bstatic, -Bdynamic
and should I use it too?

Thank you
