rakudo depends on nqp, which seems to be supported on only a limited
set of architectures. We need adjust the arch variable to rakudo and
zef to correspond with this limited set of arches.

Maybe we should have a whitelist of supported architectures instead of
"all" + blacklist the unsupported ones?

rakudo has an explicit dependency of libffi. Is this really needed?
there is an indirect dependency via which depends on But I don't know if rakudo will dlopen (in
which case the explicit dependeny of libffi is correct). Someone need
to investigate this and either remove explicit libffi dependency or add
a comment that explains why its needed.
