I'd expect the thing to take the most time would be the forks/execs for
“gcc -dumpmachine” and “dpkg --print-architecture”, but those do not
seem to appear visibly in the profiling output. Thorsten, could you
check to time those independently?

Your initial time showed 7s, but the profile shows only 2s, maybe
those 5s went into those two invokations, and the rest as Raphaël said
is just slow perl on your arch?
