One of my platforms is still not recognized:

preston:~/tmp/ghc-6.4.20050212 % ./configure                             
configure: loading site script /usr/local/etc/
configure: creating cache /usr/local/var/tmp/config.cache
checking build system type... sparc64-unknown-netbsd2.0.1
checking host system type... sparc64-unknown-netbsd2.0.1
checking target system type... sparc64-unknown-netbsd2.0.1
Unrecognised platform: sparc64-unknown-netbsd2.0.1

Now, I understand that it is a rather uncommon platform but I would
like to run darcs on it.

ghc runs fine on my other UltraSparc 10, which runs
Debian/GNU/Linux. hugs runs fine on the Sparc/NetBSD.

I've read
but it is still unclear for me. When I compile ghc on the Sparc /
Debian, no ".hc" files are produced.
