I found this thesis on the subject by Andreas Bauer:

  "Compilation of Functional Programming Languages using GCC -- Tail 

Do you know if it is his work that was incorporated into GCC?

I browsed trough some parts of the thesis, and he mentions GHC as one of 
the motivations for his work (the thesis also seems to be a nice 
tutorial on the internals of GCC). From this thread it seems that GHC 
cannot currently take advantage of his work. Is that correct?
