Well, I actually *do* think it used GCC's global variables: I fixed GHC in
the late 90's to make it work on HP-UX, and I'm quite sure that this
involved fiddling around with header files, finding suitable registers,
describing stack layout, fixing alignment problems etc.  Alas, I don't have
any unregistered build for GHC 0.29 (?) on HP-UX 10 at hand anymore. :-D
Perhaps one of the Simons remembers the details...
