perf is a beast. It only builds everything if a large number of
support libraries is installed on the build system. If not, it
only builds a small subset. I bet my test builds hit the failure
because I have some library installed on my build servers that
isn't installed on Linaro's servers.

This is why I can't cross-build perf; my cross build environments
don't have the necessary libraries installed.
