A prototype might be a good idea, but that shouldn't break compilation
in the manner described, because there's an AUTOLOAD there pointing to
the constant() function in Socket's XS portion. constant() only defines
SO_REUSEPORT if SO_REUSEPORT is defined in the system header files
(which it isn't here), and otherwise sets $! to ENOENT; however, that
doesn't cause a problem because the AUTOLOAD is only called at run-time.
