[arch-haskell] ArchLinux GHC and LLVM?

I just recently noticed that GHC in ArchLinux is compiled with the
LLVM backend support:

    $ ghc --info |grep llvm
     ,("Have llvm code generator","YES")

However, can it be made to work on Arch?

    $ cat Mains.hs
    module Main where

    main = return ()
    $ ghc --make -fllvm Mains.hs
    [1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( Mains.hs, Mains.o )
    opt: /tmp/ghc14739_0/ghc14739_0.ll:7:78: error: argument

    @Main_main_closure =  global %Main_main_closure_struct <{i64
