Not quite the beta snapshot, but from HEAD about the same time you
tagged and branched, I got the following positive results on

1) Build it up to stage2 and make install from ghc-6.6: ok
2) The same again with the result of 1): ok
3) Full build including all extralibs with the result of 2): ok

I'll restart the whole process with what's in the ghc-6.10 branch
now (hopefully that's ok for you, since some fixes have been already
committed to the branch), and I'll also try to run the testsuite
after step 3).

BTW: I had some problems running the testsuite some weeks ago,
because some autoconf'd stuff was missing. When building from the
repository (*not* from the source tarballs), are there any additional
steps beyond

	sh boot
	./configure --prefix=...
	gmake install



ps: I've also an amd64 (aka x86_64) at work and will run the tests
on it next week. Wether I'll be able to fix the ghci problem in
time: no idea.
