With dynamic linking and the LLVM backend GHC 7.8 is quite usable on
ARM. Unfortunately, much of the distributions' packaging hasn't been
updated to reflect this. Debian builds in experimental (starting with
7.8.20141119-8) now build GHCi on ARM; it may take a while for this to
propagate to Raspbian. When I have more bandwidth I'll see if we might
be able to start providing some unofficial Debian builds for ARM
