In the comments in the same file:

  define BYTE_CODE_METER to enable generation of a byte-op usage

So if you are interested, why not define it, re-build and see what

I have no idea what it does, but since it is not on by default since
1991, and is not documented anywhere, I don't see it as a bug if it
doesn't do whatever it is supposed to do. At the worst it is dead code
that could be deleted.
