Debian is, as always, way behind. The Parrot backend hasn't even been
supported for over a year. (There should be be newer packages in unstable,
and possibly already in testing.)

System-wide installation was broken when the new CompUnitRepo stuff was
added, and was only recently fixed --- but still needs more testing, so if
you choose to do a system-wide install of a sufficiently recent rakudo (I
think this means 2016.05 or later) you should expect to be a guinea pig.
