Sorry, I did not mean that to sound so negative.  I'm really glad you guys 
have a build for my esoteric machine at all :)  I was, in fact, referring to 
the lack of GHCi/TH/DPH support, and IIRC it uses the old via-C instead of 
LLVM, but I could be wrong about that.  More eyeballs on porting to the 
architecture would certainly not be a bad thing.

I haven't experience any actual bugs yet in my yeeloong GHC.  Thanks for 
providing it.
