I'm pleased make available GHC 5.02.3 binaries for OpenBSD i386.
Also available is a ports tree 'port' if you want to build from source.
The binary package (15M) is available from:
And can be installed with (as root):
It can be removed with (as root):
If you like building from source the ports tree 'port' that built the
binary package is available from:
To build the port you first need a GHC binary on the system. The 5.02.3
binary package can be used, or you could build 4.08.2 from .hc source
and use that. There is a port to do this at the above URL. You will also
need the Happy parser, which you can get from:
Once you have a GHC and Happy, untar the port and as root:
make && make fake
At this point the compiler is built, but you must remove the old GHC
before you can install the new one. So:
pkg_delete ghc-4.08.2 # or whatever version of GHC you used
This takes around 170 minutes on my P3 700.
Once again, any bug reports or suggestions would be welcome. You can
