That sounds fine to me, if I understand you right - I managed
to install an OpenBSD partition this afternoon, but if I can
skip that step, that's fine with me.  I don't see any .hc files
at that link, though.

I have ghc 6.4.1 on NetBSD 3.0 i386.  That's the idea, right?  as
apparently 6.8 is known to not build from .hc files.  I don't
understand `with headers starting to diverge'.
