Well done!

> Hi,
> The Haskell Platform 2010.2.0.0 RC can be built from an RPM spec file
> on Solaris 10u8, with ghc 6.12.3, as part of the Spec Files Extra project:
> http://pkgbuild.sourceforge.net/spec-files-extra/
> No binary packages are available, no support, no warranty,
> no commitment for any future work.  I have no access to Solaris 10
> operating system patches or Sun Studio compiler patches, this makes
> my development on Solaris extremely difficult.  Currently it is unknown
> whether ghc 6.12.3 will compile on any Solaris operating system distribution
> other than Solaris 10u8.  I compiled it with gcc 4.5.0 which is included
> in experimental/SFEgcc-4.5.0.spec.
> The web page for the status on Haskell Platform on Solaris is just the subversion
> log for the spec file:
> http://pkgbuild.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/pkgbuild/spec-files-extra/trunk/SFEghc-haskell-platform.spec?view=log
> I compiled over 80 haskell packages with with ghc 6.12.3 and
> the Haskell Platform 2010.2.0.0 RC.  vty fails to compile, which breaks yi.
> xmonad is currently untested and probably broken.
> I also added a spec file for the Coq proof assistant, which can generate
> Haskell code.
