I'm not a GHC hacker, but my understanding goes like this:
1) the version of ghc in darcs has support for using LLVM to generate code
on at least x86.
2) GHC has never really work as a cross compiler, but there is an active
push to change this.
The GHC wiki is here:
If you want to get started on understanding the source and hacking on it,
there are pages for that:
Probably the best thing you can do is get on the GHC mailing list:
