I'm afraid we don't have a port for your system at the moment.
Furthermore the road to porting GHC is long and tortuous :-(

We do have a port for Macs running Darwin, however I'm guessing that's
quite different to Debian (Darwin has Apple's special version of GCC for
one thing).

Check out the GHC porting instructions for more details:
