Any progress on your Mac efforts? In OS X, once you've installed Xcode
and the (*very important*) Unix Development Support part of it, it's as
sudo port install sqlite
...if you've also installed Macports, or "port", which is the
cabal-install of the Mac world.
You just run that command in the Terminal command line app (found in
Applications/Utilities) and it automatically puts the app or lib that
you've requested in your path, because macports adds itself and its /opt
directory to your path when you install it.
You'll probably find it a lot easier to add things and have cabal be
able to find them, and it'll be a bit easier for others to help too,
because OS X is *nix-y.
