I checked out and translated the head version of ghc today from darcs.
It compiled fine. When I now try to start the ghci I get the following:

---- snip ----
GHCi, version 6.11.20081126:  :? for help
ghc: internal error: loadObj: failed to mmap() memory below 2Gb; asked for 626688 bytes at 0x40000000, got 0x801635000.  Try specifying an address with +RTS -xm<addr> -RTS
    (GHC version 6.11.20081126 for x86_64_unknown_freebsd)
	    Please report this as a GHC bug:
		Abort (core dumped)

If it helps somehow, you can find the core dump here:
