Haxr provides a basic implementation of the XML-RPC protocol, and  
while it looks like it doesn' t build on 6.10 at the moment, getting  
it to build shouldn't be a problem, and although it doesn't appear to  
be under active development, it does seem to be getting maintenance  
uploads. [1]

These days, however, web services seem to be moving towards a RESTful  
model with a JSON layer and there are plenty of JSON libraries on  
hackage, which you could just throw over the fastCGI bindings.  
Alternately you could try JSON over one of the really lightweight  
haskell web servers, such as shed [2] or lucu [3]. If you go the  
latter route, I'd love to hear how it went.
