Well, actually, both archs need it.  I never owned any of the PPC macs, 
actually, just an intel mac.

In any case, I don't remember having this problem on 10.4, but I had a 
different version of MacPorts running then also.  The 10.5 version of 
MacPorts' GHC won't build on Leopard, either.  Hopefully this should fix
