Apart from warnings it should work. What is does it to enable commonly used
symbols to eb available under the old names, i.e. sv_undef instead of
PL_sv_undef, thereby "polluting" your namespace.
I have no diea where it is documentd ;)

I don't, but that module is basiclly a header file. Just rename it to
somethign else (e.g. pgppport.h) and _run_ it against the interface files:
perl -x pgppport.h *.c *.h *.xs foo/*.c [etc]
It will tell you about most things that need to be fixed.
