That would be awesome if we could get access to a decent (by which I mean
server grade, with at least 4 cores and 8 Gig of RAM).

The other option for ARM/Linux and AArch64/Linux is cross-compile builds.
Just building GHC as a cross-compiler for these targets would shave out
a lot of bugs. Let me know if you're interested. Its really pretty easy
to set up on a Debian or Ubuntu system.
