Some random notes for OpenBSD:

- No close look at the test suite results yet, but at least I didn't
  notice any strangeness like the threading problems back in ghc-6.12.

- BTW: it would be nice if snapshot sources or at least release
  candidate sources would also contain a tarball of the testsuite. I
  don't know about other distributors, but at least for OpenBSD we're
  including the testsuite into the files to download; I rolled my own
  testsuite- from the darcs repo, but that's a
  little bit inconvenient ;-)

- After working on updates of several Haskell packages and programs in
  the OpeNBSD ports tree, I didn't notice anything bad (at least
  not related to GHC). No strange compiler errors, no strange
  threading problems (as we had with early ghc-6.12 versions).

- Probably a stupid one: the module list in
  .../html/libraries/index.html) is completely empty. This may be
  (and probably is) some breakage local to my machine, but: is
  anyone else seeing this?
