I built a native perl (very slowly indeed on a 'fast model') in the
aarch64 port. But I also built a somewhat bodged cross perl first
(using Neil's debian-perl-cross and a manually-obtained (from the fast
model) file of perl config data). I can't remember if the latter was
used to make the former, or if it was independent. And I didn't record
this info on
(up one para)

This is long-winded way of saying "no I don't know, but I should" :-)
