It's not that tricky at the end. Just install LLVM 3.0 and some OS 
supplied unregisterised GHC. Grab 7.4.1. sources and attempt to compile. 
This should produce even registerised build for you as a result of 
project initiated last summer by Stephen Blackheath. If you are curious 
about its history read some posts on http://ghcarm.wordpress.com/
