Verifying installation ...

I'm missing some needed files:
(Perhaps you need to 'make install', 'make install-dev',
or install the 'devel' package for NQP or Parrot?)

To automatically clone (git) and build a copy of NQP 2013.08,
try re-running with the '--gen-nqp' or '--gen-parrot'
options.  Or, use '--with-nqp=' or '--with-parrot=' to explicitly
specify the NQP or Parrot executable to use to build Rakudo.

 I think the rakudo-star package should just be deleted. It is super old.

 Instead, use the maintained version at lang/rakudo and install p6
 packages as needed, using its package manager.
