The problem is that the conditional block is only evaluated at run time, by which time it's too late for use if.

You want:

my $LINUX; BEGIN { $LINUX = ($^O eq 'linux') }; use if $LINUX, 'MIDI::ALSA' => ('SND_SEQ_EVENT_PORT_UNSUBSCRIBED', 'SN +D_SEQ_EVENT_SYSEX');

Or better:

use if ($^O eq 'linux'), 'MIDI::ALSA' => ('SND_SEQ_EVENT_PORT_UNSUBSCR +IBED', 'SND_SEQ_EVENT_SYSEX');
perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
