You can find more info about this project in the Haskell wiki at:

All you'd need to do is to compile ghc-6.5 with a few patches (if you
are in Windows you can use MinGW). But I am afraid you are right, this
is a work in progress and we are in the process of polishing some
serious issues right now. I can't really recommend it for now.
