This release candidate is also available for testing purposes through
the gentoo haskell overlay. http://code.haskell.org/gentoo/gentoo-haskell/
You can use the overlay either through layman (overlay called haskell)
or by yourself a la old school, PORTDIR_OVERLAY in make.conf.
We don't yet have any ebuilds for the extralibs.
GHC is hard masked, meaning only available for testing purposes, use
$ echo dev-lang/ghc >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
It's also keyworded ~amd64 ~x86, meaning you'll have to allow
potentially unstable packages:
$ echo dev-lang/ghc >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
Last but not least, the ebuild does not provide any bootstrapping binary
to compile ghc, so you need to already have a version of ghc installed
to bootstrap with. Then emerge with
$ USE="ghcbootstrap -binary" emerge dev-lang/ghc
Please report any issues in #gentoo-haskell @ freenode.
