Bennet is correct.

If you're buildilng from source, you'll need perl5 and make (and git
if you don't have a tarball to work from)

If you're using MoarVM backend, you'll need a C compiler, and javac
for the JVM backend.

Note that Perl 6 is implemented mostly in Perl 6 and NQP (Not Quite
Perl 6), but only NQP is bootstrapped.
