Indeed!  House 0.8, as listed on the official programatica page, is
based on GHC 6.2...not so fun to work with these days.

I've spent the last year or so working on House as part of my research,
and have updated it to GHC 6.8.2 (with a lot of help).  You can get a
copy of my unofficial "House 0.8.91" sources here:

It's still a bit of a challenge to build.  Notably, you'll need a 32-bit
Linux system - it doesn't build on 64-bit linux nor Mac OS X (yet).

If you just want a floppy image, you may as well stick with House 0.8 from
http://programatica.cs.pdx.edu/House/ ... it's basically the same.
