Hi Frank,
thank you for the hint. 
That explains the behavior, I didn't understand before.
I still have a couple of questions concerning gdal-tools. 
But I think I should rather use the gdal list for this (gdal-dev at lists.osgeo.org), shouldn't I?
Thank you for your replay and the software at all, that does such a great job transforming my data!
Best regards

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Im Auftrag

GDAL tools generally do not use the PROJ.4 epsg init file, and instead
read their EPSG definitions from the pcs.csv and gcs.csv files in the
GDAL data directory (FWTools<version>\data\pcs.csv and gcs.csv).
