The Edge has always been a rough patch of interstellar space filled with innumerable bad guys of every nefarious sort, and dangerous debris flying in every direction at high speeds.

README for edge package

There are, unfortunately, a number of complexities and difficulties in the dependency tree, which I think would make it difficult to compile on most platforms. However, it does build on the Debian Jessie release, with ghc-7.6.3 installed:

sudo apt-get install ghc cabal-install libghc-gloss-dev libghc-alut-dev
cabal update
cabal install edge

If you have already have version of gloss, OpenAL, or GLUT Haskell libraries installed via cabal, you may wish to remove them first with ghc-pkg unregister gloss etc.
