This is a bug in autobox. It's using CALL_FPTR where it shouldn't be
(the bug was masked by the fact that CALL_FPTR has done nothing since
5.8). This only shows up because autobox #defines PERL_CORE: the
do-nothing definitions were left in under #ifndef PERL_CORE precisely
because of CPAN misuse like this.

I've attached a patch to the CPAN bug.
