The main problem is indeed that currently not a single Haskell package
is ready for the release due to ghc6 not being up-to-date on ia64
AFAICS. ghc6 6.12 which should fix this issue was uploaded to
experimental. I hope an upload to unstable will follow soon so that
hopefully the whole lot of Haskell packages will be ready before the freeze!
