I should also note that there is a GHC 6.10.4 binary for Sparc/Linux
that is now included with Gentoo. It's got all features turned on except
for split objects (which fails due to mixing ld -r and --relax flags).
In particular it's a registerised via-C build with ghci, TH and
profiling working.

It's a distro package not a generic relocatable GHC binary tarball so
there's no point putting it on the ghc download page, but it's there
nevertheless if people want it (look for the gentoo ghc ebuild).
