[Haskell-cafe] haskell on OpenBSD 5.5

Unfortunately  installing the lib did not fix the issue:

pkg_info | grep gmp
gmp-5.0.2p2         library for arbitrary precision arithmetic

GHCi, version 7.6.3: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/  :? for help
Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.
Loading package integer-gmp ... linking ... ghc: /usr/local/lib/ghc/integer-gmp- unhandled ELF relocation(Rel) type 10

One way to rectify the issue is apparently to installed OpenBSD for x64, which I will do if I don't find fix soon.

The integer-gmp problems is that you don't have all the bits of the gmp library installed. This happens when the package system doesn't correctly pick them up, or when I install HP from outside the package system. The usual fix (on Linux, anyway) is to install the appropriate dev package to go with gmp. If OpenBSD hasn't yet succumbed to the idiocy of dev packages, it's possible the gmp library itself is missing.

I suspect similar issues with hs-vector: there's some dependency missing in the package system description.

There are a few glitches however. I installed the haskell-platform meta-package and the issues I noticed are:
- hs-vector wouldn't install
- ghci wouldn't start, the message: unable to load package `integer-gmp' Has anyone experienced the same issue? Is this happening on OpenBSD 5.4? Is this OpenBSD specific? Thanks in advance.
