I've asked them to backport 6.4.2 for dapper, but they are reluctant
as it would require backporting all third party software (or at least
libraries) as well.
I filed a request to backport it, but for some reason, I am unable to
find it again. If you can make sense of the hopeless launchpad user
interface, feel free to add you voice to the choir.

The currently easiest way out is to install a binary snapshot. It
would sure be nice to have a working ghc as part of the base
distribution, with automatically upgrades etc. Let's hope they put a
stable 6.6 into Edgy.
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
