I managed to build ghc6_6.4.2-2, but it really took ages, it uses the -x
option a lot, so the compiling happens on the local machine and to make it
worse, it manages to trigger the 2.6 VM problems, so I had to compile it
under 2.4. Using a lot of memory should also help (> 256MB) otherwise it
spends a lot of time swapping.
