Summary

This revision updates lang/ghc as well as bootstrap compiler to 8.4.1. Also switch GHC to use ld.bfd linker, because when lld is used broken executables are produced.

Things to do:

  • Update */hs-* ports. Most of them fail with the new compiler.
  • Package the bootstrap compiler for i386.
  • exp-runs for both arches for all supported versions.

Event Timeline

  • Update some hs-ports removing those that aren't compilable anymore and have no updates upstream.

Thanks for working on this

Sure about this change?

Without last * libraries with names like libffi.so.6 were not stripped and stage-qa was complaining.

  • New round of updating hs-ports. Make devel/hs-cabal-install compile.

Still have broken binaries w/ lld in 8.4.1? AFAICT upstream reported things are working with lld as of 8.4.1 and lld may even be preferred. Maybe ghc+lld works on Linux but not on FreeBSD; if so that would also be an interesting data point.

Yes, I plan to closely look at it after this update.

Great, thanks; let me know if there's anything you'd like me to do to help.

  • Incorporate patch from PR 225834.
  • More hs-ports updates.
  • Another round of hs-ports updates.

How many more do you have to go through?

Some more hs-ports updates. At this points building */hs-* in poudriere yields 82 failed and 161 skipped ports.

  • 20 more hs-ports updated.
  • A few hs-ports updates. This brings down failed/skipped numbers to 56/85.
  • Still updating hs-ports.
  • Update some hs-ports. Failed/Skipped ports numbers are down to 35/55.
  • Some more hs-ports updates.
  • Remove hs-stm port. STM package is in the base now.
  • More hs-ports updates.
  • Update devel/stack to the recent release.
  • Remove hs-text and hs-parsec ports and update many others. Failed/Skipped/Ignored numbers are 16/27/13.
  • Last iteration of hs-ports updates. All hs-ports are now either compile, or are ignored.
  • Connect newly added ports to their category/Makefile.

  • Use IGNORE= instead of BROKEN=

What's the status on i386?

I've started producing bootstrap compiler for it. After that, all FreeBSD version of i386 arch can be tested too.
