oprofile is a good Linux system profiling tool, then there are the more
usual suspects:

 - strace
 - ltrace
 - ftrace

Personally, I usually often end up starting with a Perl-level profiler,
like Devel::NYTProf, and some help from strace to see where the difference
is. If it requires more digging (like time spend *outside* perl itself),
a healthy mix of the above tool with some custom aggregating scripts
works for me.

Hope this helps.
