OS X GHC build has these test failures:

Unexpected failures:
   cabal/sigcabal01       sigcabal01 [bad stderr] (normal)
   driver/retc001         retc001 [bad stderr] (normal)
   ffi/should_run         T2276_ghci [bad exit code] (ghci)
   rts                    linker_unload [bad exit code] (normal)
   th                     T10019 [bad stdout] (ghci)
   th                     T10279 [stderr mismatch] (normal)
   typecheck/should_fail  T10534 [stderr mismatch] (normal)

sigcabal01 looks like tests that depend on generated names or offsets that
are just different under OS X

retc001 - test looks busted to me: Does GHC now exit with a process error
code of non-zero when compilation fails? If so, the Makefile needs fixing.

T2276_ghci - looks like -Wignored-attributes broke this test?

linker_unload - malloc.h is in malloc/malloc.h under OS X (!)

T10019 - magic generated symbol in "golden" test out is wrong: 'a_1627391544'
vs. 'a_1627391540'

T10279 - panic! (the 'impossible' happened) gual_pkg rts-1.0

T10534 - text message punctation change

There were also a bunch of performance deviations - but they were mostly
just out of bounds or wildly different (over by 100%.... under by 50%!)
