YHC, last I heard, was alive and well and there's a YHC Core backend
for the JVM.

There's interest but my understanding is that the GHC backend
architecture is not at all friendly to work with. That said, I hear
in the next release (I think 6.12, not the 6.10 that's in beta) will
have a redesigned backend architecture that is supposed to be much
easier to work with, which will make it easier to provide native code
generators for many currently poorly-served platforms --- including
the JVM if anyone is so inclined.
