Building on FreeBSD
Installing on FreeBSD
The recommend way to install GHC on FreeBSD is just to install it as part of the Haskell Platform port, i.e. devel/hs-haskell-platform. This can be done via old pkg_tools:
# pkg_add -r hs-haskell-platform
Or via pkg:
# pkg install hs-haskell-platform
Note that you can find ports for many popular Haskell software on FreeBSD. For the complete listing, please consult the haskell category in the Ports Collection.
