I think we would have to rely heavily on Perl itself. Not as
a programminglanguage to write the compiler itself in, but the
C-source of Perl to use, or the B::Bytecode or something
to get to the backend of the Perl compilation process itself.

in thread The Perl Compiler (turning perl scripts into binary executables)
I think the last thing we should do is to rewrite the
Perl engine itself!! How could we ever keep up with new versions
if we were writing every part ourselves?
No, re-use what has been done, and write only the last part
of the process, namely the creation of the binary executable.
