Not really; except that it looks like a problem with the mangler (a perl
script that runs over the assembly produced by gcc). From time to time
we get incompatibilities between the mangler and gcc, mainly when new
versions of gcc come out.
It may be that this bug has been fixed - it's probably a good idea to
try a more recent version of GHC. The FreeBSD package is up to 4.08.1,
so that should be a good starting point.
If that doesn't work, we'll need to investigate further.
