I see these 'distributions' as deployment profiles.
It would be very easy to package up (more akin to customizing a linux
distro) perl6 with all those lovely XML pm tweaking here and there,
in the meantime, I have yet to get latest trunk perl6 running
properly, on parrot, or freebsd then I will start thinking of such a
task (everything compiles fine). as an aside I am getting an;
"load_bytecode" couldn't find file 'Protoobject.pbc'
current instr.: 'parrot;PGE::Match;__onload' pc 0
called from Sub 'parrot;Perl6::Compiler;__onload' pc 0 (perl6.pir:30)
called from Sub 'parrot;Perl6::Compiler;main' pc -1 ((unknown file):-1)
also I do not want to emulate perl6 in perl5;
will try on the OSX box now.
