Hi Ian,

A good news is that GHC 7.6.2 can be compiled on FreeBSD 9.1. But this
problem exists:

Typing "gmake -j10" again completes the building.

A bad new is that test is not completed.

	- Compiling T5001 uses CPU 100%
	- signals004 is waiting for something forever

Killing these two processes completes tests. The result is as follows:
