There is a working GHC-to-.Net runtime available at
www.mondrian-script.org <http://www.mondrian-script.org/> ; reving the
Jva a backend should not be too much of a problem.

I'm afraid that no one ever completed the GHC Haskell->Java
story.  The idea is that the JVM is the runtime, but of
course you need to implement the standard libraries somehow,=3D20
and all the primitive operations GHC uses.   Not a trivial
task, but one we are undertaking for .NET.

Bottom line: the reason you can't find a runtime is because
you are supposed to compile the Java with a Java compiler
and run that.  But you'll need to do more than that to
actually run programs
