Given that parrot was uploaded before the perl 5.12 transition (hence built
with perl 5.10.1), that may be the cause.

I've just tried to build rakudo in a i386 chroot using parrot built with 
perl 5.12 and it didn't fail, while building rakudo on i386 with the parrot 
from the archive failed (they were both i386 chroots on amd64, the result 
may be inaccurate).

I'm not sure what's the correct way to proceed, but if the cause is that, 
IMHO parrot should be re-built on all the architectures as part of the perl 
5.12 transition, or something like that.


perl -E'$_=q;$/= @{[@_]};and s;\S+;<inidehG ordnasselA>;eg;say~~reverse'
