I have no idea what ghc has too do with gcc, or what the problem
exactly is. We have very little problems with gcc for the debian
amd64 port. Our default compiler is still 3.3. This builds
almost everything without problems, however we build a few
mozilla packages with gcc-3.4.
All I can tell is that ghc6 seems to be working on debian amd64.
It can build itself and things like that.
Can someone please give a test case (and show what to do) to see
what is wrong?
Out current default compiler in debian is:
gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-8)
The gcc 3.4 version is:
gcc version 3.4.4 20050203 (prerelease) (Debian 3.4.3-9)
And ghc6 is at version 6.2.2-3.
