I need to run some benchmarks on a hypervisor (Xtratum) Linux partition. The kernel version is 3.4.4-xm and comes as an SDK which I only need to path include in the hypervisor makefile. As noted in the title, no /tools or gcc are provided for this patched kernel.

Is there any way to get to run perf in my Linux partition?

Edit: I should mention that I can add files in the partition. I, for example, tried adding the /tools/perf from a 3.4.4 kernel, only to find out that I can't build it because there was no gcc either.
