Are there porters on d-release, or should someone actually notify them
about this problem?

Assuming nobody steps up to fix this, or nobody is able to, what is the
plan B: Somewhen the Haskell packages will be ready on the other arches
(there are issues to sort out until then, but solvable ones). Will we
just remove the ia64 haskell packages then?
