[sf-perl] Perl 6 on Debian

I received "Learning Perl 6" [LP6] today.

I use Debian Stretch.

Browsing perl6.org, I see that a source tarball is available for *nix 
platforms.  But, I have found that building and installing software from 
source tends to destabilize my system (likely, PEBKAC).  I prefer Debian 
packages -- first, from the Debian project; second, from the vendor.

Searching Apt, I found and installed the "perl6" package:

2018-09-25 18:17:59 dpchrist at vstretch ~
$ perl6 -v
This is Rakudo version 2016.12 built on MoarVM version 2016.12
implementing Perl 6.c.

LP6 uses "Rakudo Star version 2018.04 built on MoarVM version 2018.04."

Searching https://backports.debian.org/, I don't see any perl6 or rakudo 

Any comments or suggestions?
