Great news! So we can deliver a complete port for GHC 6.12 soon :P

Do not forget that we might duplicate lang/ghc as lang/ghc-devel (as
Jacula proposed earlier) where we could put GHC 6.12 without any fear of
build problems, since I think Haskell ports would use the actual ghc
installed on the system (independently of its package). That would
enable the curious users to spot potential problems with 6.12.x without
risking the ports officially.

Now I have a FreeBSD/amd64 9-current installed on my notebook, I can
build bootstrap tarballs for both i386/amd64 and 6/7/8/9 systems, it is
only matter of jail and free time :P
