These aren't faults of the language, these are faults of the implementation. There is nothing impossible about writing a compiler for Perl to machine code, or constructing a chip that natively executes (!!) Perl.

Assembly (of all kinds) and Perl are both Turing complete, so anything written in one can be written in the other, theoretically.
