nhc has been used for a number of embedded projects. I've seen it run on
a credit-card sized ARM device. Tony Sloane and others at Macquarie are
working on an embedded nhc project too. There are probably others. There
was a thread on haskell-cafe about running nhc on the palm recently,
starting here:

Another area is covered by hOp and HOUSE, the Haskell OS projects, that
run GHC's RTS on bare metal, though probably not on tiny devices.

Btw, you can run GHC on a machine with 12M ram, but you badly need your
swap and it isn't pretty :)
