I've deleted your message (well, Jarkko's forward of it)
The problem is because the XS code has a line starting


(well, 6 actually) and it appears that xsubpp is treating it as POD.
I don't know enough about XS to know if it's supposed to be able to hold

        Log: make xsubpp skip embedded pod (from Matthias Neeracher
     Branch: perl
           ! lib/ExtUtils/xsubpp

Primitive.xs seem to be generated from something else.
I changed "\n=p" to "\n =p" and it all compiles, but doesn't link
because I don't have all the libraries:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lMesaGL

I'm not sure what to do now.
Does should xsubpp only skip POD if a flag is given?
Should it warn that it's skipping what appears to be POD if no flag is
given? (ie skip/don't/warn flag defaulting to warn?)
Or should PDL::PP be changed to generate XS that doesn't contain "\n=" ?
