Yes, I can confirm this, ghci doesn't work but ghc does.
ghci exits with an abort trap:
ghc-6.6.1: internal error: R_X86_64_PC32 relocation out of range: environ = 0xfffffffdf7a303ee
(GHC version 6.6.1 for x86_64_unknown_openbsd)
Please report this as a GHC bug: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/reportabug
zsh: abort (core dumped) ghci
This is on amd64 -CURRENT.
kili, I was wondering about your plans for the ghc 6.8 port. I tested
your work-in-progress port some time ago and it compiled fine with the
inplace ghc 6.6 compiler.
If I understand correctly you want to have bootstrapping from hc files
work before you update the port, however it might take some time until
the bootstrapping problem is fixed.
I saw that the FreeBSD port downloads a precompiled ghc from one of
their servers to compile the port, wouldn't that be a good solution for
the OpenBSD port, too, until bootstrapping is fixed?
