It's supposed to be created by mkppport, using the contents of mkppport.lst

    # List of directories into which a ppport.h should be installed.
    # Please try to keep the list sorted.
    # This file is read by mkppport at build time.

Looks like Time-HiRes is the only one of those 4 built on VMS. I assume that
mkppport is being run, as it's a prerequisite of dynext:

dynext : $(LIBPREREQ) $(DBG)perlshr$(E) preplibrary makeppport $(MINIPERL_EXE)
       $(MINIPERL) "MAKE=$(MMS)" "--all"

makeppport : $(MINIPERL_EXE) $(ARCHDIR)
	$(MINIPERL) mkppport

so where is it wrongly writing the ppport.h to, and why?
