Unfortunately, GHC isn't written in standard Haskell 98: GHC's
written in Haskell 98 with GHC extensions, sometimes referred to as
"Glasgow Haskell". You can probably deduce that the only compiler
that'll compile Glasgow Haskell is GHC.
As Robert said, 6.2.2 is available as a binary from the GHC site, but
GHC currently lacks a Sparc/Solaris maintainer which is why 6.4 isn't
available; there's not much anyone can do about that, besides hope
for a new Sparc maintainer. However, hopefully the documentation
will be updated by one of the GHC hackers so that what you
experienced won't happen again!
