Not AFAIK. But even if it theoretically can, the others (hugs and
nhc98) don't really work well enough to do this in practice. I updated
nhc98 recently, but it still supports 64-bit platforms only by
compiling itself with -m32. Also it won't run on one of my machines
for some reason I haven't got around to chasing down.

"GHC is required to build GHC, because GHC itself is written in Haskell, and uses 
GHC extensions."
"In general, we support building with the previous 2 major releases"
