    66Building GHC on FreeBSD is currently supported on 8.1-RELEASE or later, on {{{i386}}} (x86) and {{{amd64}}} (x86_64) architectures.  One might be able to build GHC on different architectures and earlier versions but they are not maintained actively.  Note that 8.1-RELEASE is used for the FreeBSD nightly builds ([http://darcs.haskell.org/ghcBuilder/builders/pgj/ amd64 head], [http://darcs.haskell.org/ghcBuilder/builders/pgj2/ i386 head], [http://darcs.haskell.org/ghcBuilder/builders/pgj-freebsd-amd64-stable/ amd64 stable], [http://darcs.haskell.org/ghcBuilder/builders/pgj-freebsd-i386-stable/ i386 stable]).

     8''Note that this section is intended for developers and early adopters primarily.  If you are just want to install GHC on your system, simply use the `devel/hs-haskell-platform` port instead.  This port does all the things described below for you.  It is usually kept updated to match the latest Haskell Platform specifications.''
