[sf-perl] Perl installation performance benchmark

I have Perl installed on various x86_64 (amd64) architecture machines -- 
Windows/ Cygwin, macOS, GNU/Linux, and FreeBSD.  I am looking for a 
simple multi-platform benchmark that I can use to gauge performance of a 
Perl installation on any supported platform -- e.g. something like 'time 
perl benchmark.pl' or 'make benchmark'.  (I can use additional tools to 
"dig deeper".)  It would be best if the benchmark only required core 
Perl and if the benchmark supported versions released over the past 
decade or so.  I use threads for concurrency, so it would be nice if the 
benchmark included an option for that (e.g. '-j=4' or 'export 
HARNESS_OPTIONS=j4').  Any suggestions?
