Maybe, but I always (Linux+BeOS) get errors that some .o file could not 
be created.
Something like:
Make: could not create target Control/Arrow.o ... Stop.
I do not have the correct message.
How are the .hs files generated and why are they not generated in BeOS 
and Linux?

Now, compiling in the ghc folder starts correctly and I get errors about 
  missing itimer (can I safely disable that or should I add an emulator 
for it?) and mmap. Will the libraries be compiled after that?

I saw comments about BeOS in the code. Did someone try to port it already?

Thank you.
