Short anser: yes it does.
Longer answer: it depends on what you want out of perl. I managed to build perl from scratch on my Synology DS213:
But I have problems with dynamic loading due to shared lib conflicts. I installed the development suite as the Synology site prescribes. The CORE has been amended to support the deviating environment.
The download sites for the DSM also have prebuilt perl available, but I find</p
Way too old to play with :)
There is also an alternative resource, but that also is not reasonably up-to-date:
IIRC Brian managed to do a cross-compile build for ARM.
Native compilation on ARM just uses Configure if the OS is Linux-like, so all rules for Linux/Unix regarding configuring threads, 32/64-bitness and all apply.
Not every ARM is the same. I noticed that my armv5tel is not the same as other ARM architectures. YMMV.
