No. Tarballs similar to Linux ones on the official home page. This
way early adopters on FreeBSD can experiment with GHC 6.12.2 without
requiring them to do the necessary compilation manually. Obviously
this will not include dependency checking as it is not a fully-fledged
port, but it can be used without special permissions.
It is different from a bootstrap tarball since it will include
profiled libraries, pre-built documentation etc, though it can be used
as a bootstrap. I would be happy to see a lang/ghc-devel port
featuring GHC 6.12, so it can be taken as a step towards that.
