Here is the announce I've made today to the haskell-jvm-bridge mailing list:

ghc-6.4.2 is currently the default version on both Linux and FreeBSD, so 
i think it's recent enough. I'm only starting to experiment with 
jvm-bridge (compiling it was the only way to start learning it 8-). As 
long as i'm using it, i'm going to try to support it as well.
