[Haskell-cafe] ghci on ARM m3?

I would say no way to run ghci on M3, but this should be possible on RPi 
especially if you consider v2 which provides quad-core ARMv7 CPU. ARMv6 
on the v1 should also be possible if the support has not bit-roted that 

Anyway, GHC for ARM requires LLVM and the situation with GHC/LLVM is not 
currently stable as it's kind of in transition period from old LLVM 
support to new LLVM support. Ben Gamari (cced to this) knows more about it.
