Adding something to bootstrap-tools implies that we can't use the
installed miniperl (backward compatibility problem) or the host doesn't
have miniperl.  The bootstrap-tools built miniperl would then be used
throughout the build and install stages.

Note that bootstrap-tools are built (and installed under /obj) to be run
on the host.  This means that miniperl is going to be built a second time
for the target architecture.  The bootstrap-tools stage is designed to
solve incompatibilities caused by versions of tools installed on the
system and the requirements (for newer ones) by the source-tree.
