Yep, something like parrot-runtime or similar. Alternatively you can just
move those files to the main parrot package. The files are those listed by
Patrick, but I think you can move all the /usr/lib/parrot/3.6.0/library/

I'm going to update rakudo to the new upstream release now that parrot 3.6.0
is in the archive, do you plan to make such modification soon, so that I
can update rakudo accordingly?
