Comment(by kgardas):

 as a Solaris user I'd like to add that the patch is not needed for Solaris
 native compiles. i.e. i386. 7.6.x compiles and runs fine on Solaris. The
 patch is needed for cross-compiling i386-solaris -> x86_64-solaris. The
 problem is that hsc2hs is kind of more strict while cross-compiling than
 while doing native compiles -- that's why the code even before patch run
 fine and I just fail on it once attempting cross-compiling to
 So, message is clear, if 7.6.x does not support cross-compilation, I
 wouldn't bother with merging the patch into 7.6.x branch.
