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We are using ppport.h correctly - we're just a bit out of date, that's all.
