Gentoo supports the Haskell Platform!

Unmask and Install GHC 6.10.4

Currently (2009-08-02) GHC 6.10.4 and a few libraries are hard masked, meaning you will have to p.unmask yourself before installing. This is because we're still updating the portage packages to get full GHC 6.10.4 support.

echo dev-lang/ghc >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
echo dev-haskell/parallel >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
echo dev-haskell/haddock >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

As the haskell-platform depends on this recent GHC version, you'll need to unmask it too;

echo dev-haskell/haskell-platform >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

Don't forget that these packages are also ~keyworded.

Now, to install, run:

emerge haskell-platform
