It is, but this misses the point. You want to use the latest ppport.h
even when building with earlier perls.
The man page says:
just take the most recent copy of ppport.h that you
can find (e.g. by generating it with the latest "Devel::PPPort"
from CPAN), copy it into your project, adjust your project to use it,
and distribute the header along with your module.
We are using ppport.h correctly - we're just a bit out of date, that's all.
