Just some quick steps to compile Elm for OpenBSD on amd64 based chips since the official distribution does not support OpenBSD yet.
Get OpenBSD installed and run these commands as root:
pkg_add git pkg_add cabal-install git clone https://github.com/elm/compiler.git cd compiler git checkout 0.19.1 rm worker/elm.cabal cabal new-update cabal new-configure cabal new-build
Wait for a while and the binary should be hopefully at
IMPORTANT: Please ensure you have at least 4 gigas RAM memory available for the compilation to work
As always a big thank you to Evan Czaplicki and the wonderful people creating and maintaining Elm.
Some references compilation optimizations may be found at https://github.com/elm/compiler/blob/0.19.1/installers/linux/Dockerfile and https://gist.github.com/rlefevre/1523f47e75310e28eee243c9c5651ac9
