Glasgow Haskell Compiler successfully ported to OpenSPARC

Ben Lippmeier has been working on the native port of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) to SPARC. The port was completed a few months back, and since then he's been using an UltraSPARC T2 system to look at thread activity and scaling as the number of threads is increased. The full details of the project are on his GHC on SPARC blog. The latest SPARC/Solaris binary can be downloaded here, although the full set of changes probably won't be available for a couple of months.

Comments:

Great to here, especially since GHC was originally developed on SPARC! Next step lets get it into one of the pkg.opensolaris.org repositories.
