What is New in Cross Compiling Haskell
Sadly I wasn’t able to write anything throughout July. I hope I will be able to carve out some time this month to write about the new features we have been working on.
The focus has mainly been on making the compilation experience for cross compilers as pleasant as possible and figuring out how to build binary distributions of GHC cross compilers.
One of the rather annoying kludges has been the need for the
libtool-lite script on some platforms; this should be unnecessary
soon. And while we still need the wrapper file for cabal,
cabal has learned about

library of the project (with GHCs that support
