Haskell Stack Ports on Apple Silicon

I confirm that this approach does not work on an M1 Mac.

Trying to install a stack portion an M1—whether or not `supported_archs x86_64` is set—throws this architecture mismatch error when trying to install on the M1:

> Cannot install shellcheck for the arch 'arm64' because
> It’s dependency stack is only installed for the arch 'x86_64'

> Unable to execute port: architecture mismatch

This appears to be a functional bug in MacPorts that prevents installation of working x86_64 binaries on the M1.

If it is “correct” to specify `supported_archs x86_64` in the Portfile, there must be a way to avoid the error above.
