Sounds like it, yes.  Thanks for bringing this up.

AFAIK no.

Knowing diddly about DTrace, where's its documentation?  Most likely
trivial support can be had by writing a compiler/linker wrapper that
runs dtrace programs as part of the build process.  Anything more
involved needs to know about semantics and command line interface.

Such support would be nice, and we'd be happy to help if you are eager
to add such functionality.  (Note that nontrivial patches require
copyright assignment to the FSF.)
