thanks to 64bit GHC binaries provided by Alain's SmartOS builder I've 
been able to hack GHC to compile well on/for x86_64-solaris platform. 
Austin already merged the support into GHC HEAD, see 

It would be great if you also give it a try and test on your systems or 
with cross-compiling without a need to install SmartOS libraries.
