[Haskell-cafe] Looking for portable Haskell or Haskell like language

I recently built a binary installer for GHC 7.6.3 to run on CentOS 5.9,
which should be compatible with RHEL 5. It uses glibc 2.5, at least. I
don't have a good place to host it long-term, but would be happy to make it
available to you (or anyone else who's interested).
