I reposted there, but then got past it by myself (eventually), so I
cancelled my post.

This is looking good, although harris only has one CPU so it isn't quite
done yet. I notice as a result that our darcs GHC repository is at 7.8,
though, and my understanding of darcs is that a 7.6 maintenance branch
(e.g. for arm64 porting) would need to be pushed to a different
directory, maybe just s/ghc/ghc-7.6/. Do you have any preferences?
