GHC's Building Guide is a good place to start:


Although note that bootstrapping on a new platform using the 5.xx series =
is a little difficult due to the way we preprocess some of the library =
sources using hsc2hs (although it has been done by at least one brave =
soul).  You might want to start from 4.08.2 using .hc files and =
bootstrap up to 5.02 from there.  4.08.2 is the oldest version we =
support building the current sources with.

We'll be here to provide guidance and moral support, as usual...
