Well, it shouldn't be very surprising that the deb7 (wheezy) ghc bindist
doesn't work on deb6 (squeeze), as it's been compile-time configured for
the environment provided by deb7 which has newer libraries with more

So what's needed here is probably a 2nd linux bindist build on an
ancient enough (i.e. the one with the oldest libraries among
CentOS6/Deb6/Ubuntu10.04) Linux environment.
