In the master branch, the best is to look in configdata.pm.
$config{perlargv} contains your arguments, that line looks like this:

      perlargv => [ "linux-x86_64", "-Wa,--noexecstack" ],

In the earlier releases, you will find the corresponding data in
Makefile, such as this:

    CONFIGURE_ARGS=linux-x86_64 -Wa,--noexecstack
