Actually, $*KERNEL is implemented. We even have it mentioned in the documentation:
* https://docs.perl6.org/language/variables#index-entry-%24%2AKERNEL
* https://docs.perl6.org/type/Kernel

The tests are in https://github.com/perl6/roast/blob/master/S02-magicals/KERNEL.t and can be unfudged (but ? has to be replaced with *). That's about it.

I'll link other kernel-related tickets with this one.
OK I'm wrong on this one. See https://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2017-12-02#i_15522727
and https://design.perl6.org/S28.html

Not quite sure why would anybody need all that information about the compiler environment, but that's the original intent.
