Dear GHC developers,

I have the two questions.

1. How  ghc-6.6  runs on 64-bit machines having more that  2^32  
   byte memory ?
   Can it run into "Segmentation fault" ? 

2. Can you prepare a reliable  ghc-6.6 binary  for  Itanium a64 Linux
Or maybe, someone can contribute ?

One of my colleagues says the following.

He has taken such a binary from 
> (http://www.haskell.org/ghc/distribution_packages.html#debian),
somehow installed it and tried to make from source. It reports

>/tmp/ghc12430_0/ghc12430_0.s: Assembler messages:
>     Error: Operand 1 of `mov' should be a general register

(though, I have not looked so far, in how all this was done).
