The short answer would be no.
From perlmacosx (specifically that last paragraph)
Support for 64-bit addressing is experimental: some aspects of Perl ma
be omitted or buggy. Note the messages output by Configure for fur
information. Please use "perlbug" to submit a problem report in th
event that you encounter difficulties.
When building 64-bit modules, it is your responsiblity to ensure t
linked external libraries and frameworks provide 64-bit support: i
do not, module building may appear to succeed, but attempts to use
module will result in run-time dynamic linking errors, and subsequ
test failures. You can use "file" to discover the architectures
supported by a library:
$ file libgdbm.3.0.0.dylib
libgdbm.3.0.0.dylib: Mach-O fat file with 2 architectures
libgdbm.3.0.0.dylib (for architecture ppc): Mach-O dynami
+cally linked shared library ppc
libgdbm.3.0.0.dylib (for architecture ppc64): Mach-O 64-bit
+ dynamically linked shared library ppc64
Note that this issue precludes the building of many Macintosh-spec
CPAN modules ("Mac::*"), as the required Apple frameworks do not p
PPC64 support. Similarly, downloads from Fink or Darwinports are
unlikely to provide 64-bit support; the libraries must be rebuilt
source with the appropriate compiler and linker flags. For further
information, see Apple's *64-Bit Transition Guide* at
