I would prefer to rely on Perl’s build system, assuming it supports 

Now, I see that Buildroot uses perl-cross, so maybe it’s a sign that
it’s unavoidable:

Besides I personally don’t consider cross-compilation of Perl a
priority, so unless you have a need for it, you can choose a different
task to work on.  ;-)

Great.  :-)

It is!  It’s usually a lot easier with packages that use the GNU build
system than with packages that use custom build tools such as Perl.

Let me know if you want to pursue the Perl cross-compilation endeavor
and if not, we can close this issue.
