$^C should be true when compiling

$^C should be true when compiling, not just when the
-c flag is
The idea of
$^C is that it allows programs to change their behaviour
when being compiled. However, the way it's implemented means it's only
true when the
-c flag is given on the Perl command line. At the
moment, there's no way of telling whether you're in a
BEGIN block or
not, and there ought to be.
$^C true while the interpreter is compiling code, and not just
when it's going to compile and quit.
