Building GHC for BB10 (QNX)

Hey all,

I'm interesting in trying to get an initial port for BlackBerry 10 (QNX) 
going.  It's a POSIXish environment with primary interest in two 
architechtures: x86 (for simulator) and ARMv7 (for devices).

I'm wondering if <> 
is fairly up-to-date or not?  Is there a better place I should be looking?

One big difference (which may turn out to be a problem) is that the 
readily-available QNX compilers (gcc ports) are cross-compilers.  I realise 
that GHC has no good support to act as a cross-compiler yet, and anticipate 
complications arising from trying to build GHC using a cross-compiler for 
bootstrapping (since that implies GHC acting as a cross-compiler at some 
point in the bootstrapping).

Any suggestions would be very welcome.
