If a perl script fails to open a file, it shouldn't give a *segfault*.
Can you please send us the exact output?

What's the output of
ls -l /etc/texdoctk/
I speculate that there is no file /etc/texdoctk/texdocrc. Since this
file is a conffile, removing and reinstalling won't restore it; instead
you need to purge and reinstall.
Do you have an idea why the file was removed?
