I see what you are saying Alex, thank you for your quick response. Your description of cross compiling matches my understanding (but I can see how my write up could have been more clear). However, my understanding of Perl's way of 'cross compiling' is different, and consists of 2 steps: First, build something called 'miniperl'. This miniperl is then supposed to be transferred to the target machine, where miniperl will then build actual Perl. Of course, in your explanation, only the first step would be cross-compiling: building on macos (x86_64) for a machine (iPhone) running arm64. So I am hoping there is a way to cross-compile Perl in the way you described, without having to transfer minperl (or any access at all before building) to the target machine/system. And maybe my understanding of Perl-specific cross compilation is flawed of incomplete too, I found quite some information on the topic, but mostly not in agreement with each other.
