Indeed, I've overlooked that completely and I was referring to previous 
info of `ghc --info' where it's clearly registerised:

  ,("LLVM llc command","llc")
  ,("LLVM opt command","opt")
  ,("Project version","7.10.2")
  ,("Project Git commit id","0da488c4438d88c9252e0b860426b8e74b5fc9e8")
  ,("Booter version","7.10.1")
  ,("Build platform","x86_64-unknown-linux")
  ,("Host platform","x86_64-unknown-linux")
  ,("Target platform","arm-unknown-linux")
