GHCi should be functional. As of 7.6.3 (IIRC) the GHC runtime linker has
had support for ARM, although it is known to be buggy in some cases.

More recently there has been a push to move towards dynamic linking by
default. This removes GHC's runtime linker from the equation although
introduces some difficulties of its own (mostly due to bugs in binutil's
linker [1).

A few months back I wrote down some notes on the current state of GHC on
ARM [2]. This might answer some of your questions.
