Interesting wrong usage. I get the correct backtrace:
$ perl6 -V
Unable to open filehandle from path '-V'
current instr.: 'perl6;PCT;HLLCompiler;evalfiles' pc 1318
called from Sub 'perl6;PCT;HLLCompiler;command_line' pc 1504
called from Sub 'perl6;Perl6;Compiler;main' pc -1 ((unknown file):-1)

I've installed parrot-devel also, that's the solution and the ad-hoc workaround.

parrot upstream moved some files from parrot-devel to the main parrot package
in their MANIFEST rules, which I do not automatically parse (yet).
So the error is strictly on my side, not upstream.

But there's also no testing done for installed-only versions. We just
get feedback from users like you.
