 > Based on my current experience with Macports and GHC, I'd say the ghc
 port needs to be simplified: drop dependency on LLVM - GHC people say it's
 not sufficiently debugged,

 Please communicate with the MacPorts maintainer of ghc about this, by
 email or in the ticket about the ghc update. They will not see your
 messages in this ticket.

 > drop attempts to manage Haskell packages via Macports - cabal and stack
 will remain better at that job  anyway. It is trying to do too much, which
 IMHO is why its maintainers find it so hard to keep current.

 If we did that, we would also have to remove all the ports that have
 dependencies on Haskell packages, and all the ports that depend on them,
 and so on.
