Hope so.

Currently MakeMaker looks for xsubpp in 'ExtUtils' directories of the @INC
directories. (look for MM_Unix::tool_xsubpp().) This could be potentially
problematic in edge cases. Looking for xsubpp5.x.y in $Config{installbin}
(or any more appropriate Config variable) would be a small improvement.
