Some random notes for OpenBSD:
- No close look at the test suite results yet, but at least I didn't
notice any strangeness like the threading problems back in ghc-6.12.
- BTW: it would be nice if snapshot sources or at least release
candidate sources would also contain a tarball of the testsuite. I
don't know about other distributors, but at least for OpenBSD we're
including the testsuite into the files to download; I rolled my own
testsuite-126.96.36.19901215.tar.bz2 from the darcs repo, but that's a
little bit inconvenient ;-)
- After working on updates of several Haskell packages and programs in
the OpeNBSD ports tree, I didn't notice anything bad (at least
not related to GHC). No strange compiler errors, no strange
threading problems (as we had with early ghc-6.12 versions).
- Probably a stupid one: the module list in
.../html/libraries/index.html) is completely empty. This may be
(and probably is) some breakage local to my machine, but: is
anyone else seeing this?
