Version 2015.12 of Rakudo Perl 6 has some new features you may be interested in.

>From https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/nom/docs/ChangeLog
    + Greatly overhauled module loading and installation, including handling
      precompilation at module installation time in Rakudo
    + Automatic precompilation of modules
    + 'no precompilation' pragma to opt out of precompilation

It has been announced that an easy to installl Rakudo Star distribution
of Perl 6 will be available in two weeks or so.  I've installed Rakudo
Star versions of Perl 6 on Linux in the past with no problems.  I
personally haven't used any of the other ways to install Perl 6 yet.
