Sorry, keeping a package because it works for some users but not
others does not really makes sense. Especially since some parts of
the haskell ecosystem need GHCi to compile and that they currently
break on the debian buildds.

However, I for one would like to see this issue fixed and would
appreciate it if you could supply more information for your system.
For instance, if you could post the output of "cat /proc/cpuinfo"
for your powerpc system where ghci works that may provide a clue.


PS : I have been tracking GHC upstream for the best part of a year and
     GHCi remains broken on my system.
