[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?
