I was thinking more of the other weird unregisterised Debian archs GHC
is built for.

Sounds like the behaviour of the amd64 *registerised* build, not an

openbsd/amd64 runs fine, and the Haskell ports on this arch (darcs,
alex, happy..) all work. SimonM built a working amd64-linux build about
a year ago, so it does run on linux.
Someone needs to dive in and debug this for linux, because the above
problem isn't a limitation of the amd64 GHC port, but something linux
