Unfortunately, I can't get far enough in installing Devel::DProf to run
t/io/fs.t:

#####
/usr/local/bin/perl /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.18.0/ExtUtils/xsubpp 
-typemap /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.18.0/ExtUtils/typemap  DProf.xs >
DProf.xsc && mv DProf.xsc DProf.c
Please specify prototyping behavior for DProf.xs (see perlxs manual)

Running make install
  Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
Failed during this command:

I've never had to "specify prototyping behavior for DProf.xs" and don't
intend to start for a module which is quite prominently labelled as
deprecated.

So I recommend that we close this RT regardless of the status or
installability of Devel::DProf on CPAN.

Thank you very much.
