Since the iPhone OS is pretty much OS X for ARM, and GHC apparently now
supports cross-compilation, you can compile GHC for iOS.  I guess you could
cross compile Hugs with GCC.  Doing so probably isn't trivial, but it should
be straightforward.

I bet you could even use Xcode to make a graphical user interface to GHCi.
