   You can try to install it as a precompiled package - you can try to
use following command 'pkg_add -r ghc-nox11-6.6.1' or 'pkg_add -r ghc-nox11-6.6.1.tbz' (it
will try to fetch that package). If pkg_add can't find that package,
you have to search over the net for ghc-nox11-6.6.1.tbz file and use
pkg_add without '-r' option.
