    119As of this time (2010-2011) some linux distros provides just GHC 6.8.2 build as binary package(s) on IA64 Itanium platform. To upgrade to GHC 7.x you will need to perform manual bootstrap of either GHC 6.10.x or GHC 6.12.x. The problem is that both show several critical issues which make them unbuildable or unstable. See #3891 for example, although it's closed, it's not solved neither in 6.10.x nor in 6.12.x source tree.
