Looks like it's working here too  :-)

Bootstrapping IA64 from x86 (with numerous patches from CVS) looks like
it is working fine, although I am getting

ghc-6.0.1(9371): unaligned access to 0x4000000001e6177a, ip=0x4000000000dd46c1

when compiling even hello world with optimisation. The result seems to
work fine though. Is this expected? Or maybe I missed a patch?

Things aren't so easy with alpha as gcc rejects the -mieee flag when GHC
calls gcc for -cpp'ing. I fear a nasty hacky wrapper may be in order.
