Hi Karel,

usually I do not build HEAD. My attempt starting to do so failed as follows:

  git clone git://git.haskell.org/ghc.git
  cd ghc
  ./sync-all get

  ghc.mk:690: libraries/haskeline/ghc.mk: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht 
  libraries/dph/ghc.mk:134: *** dph_th_deps(v): 
libraries/dph/dph-base_dist-install_GHCI_LIB not defined!.  Schluss.
  gmake: *** [all] Fehler 2

Is there somewhere a x86_64-solaris2 binary-dist (for Solaris 10) to try 
out first?

Cheers Christian
