Does anyone know the trick to profiling perl code?

what you describe is two different things.

perl -dDProf profiles the subroutine calls of your script.

compiling perl with -pg will profile the actual binary and C-level calls.

Then I recompiled Gtk2-1.061 with CCFLAGS=-pg and produced a
Then I compiled perl with Configure -Doptimize=-pg and ran my perlscript
with perl.gprof.  That produced a gmon.out, but gtk never appears
in the output, only the perl module itself, like this:

if glib/gtk+/gdk/Xlib have not been compiled with profiling options, they won't appear in the profiler output.

Is there some way to profile the lower layers of this stuff?

those are the lower layers --- you're seeing the actual interpreter calls that implement parsing a perl script (yyparse) and manipulating hashes (hv_fetch_common) and global variables (gv_fetch_pv).

Examples really shouldn't include unexploded ordnance.
