Hi Austin,

Can you add Mark’s OS X bindists to https://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/, please?

Not sure this is a great idea, since they are now very deprecated... but until cabal-install, cgi, & HTTP update, not sure what else to do.

>> 	• scientific - needed by attoparsec - debated in detail last time ... and we're still here!
>> The Platform is significantly larger now: On OS X it has gone from 316M to 499M! Most of this is due to new OpenGL libs which are now huge (went from 98M to 239M!) GHC itself grew by 109M (to almost 1G), so that the whole installed magilla is 1.5G! Even the compressed installer is now 250M!
>> If you want to poke at it, the source is in the pre-release branch at GitHub, and the OS X builds are at my usual platform staging area:

>> Remember, it already includes GHC, so no need to download the GHC binary for OS X that is there, too.
>> I'll try to get a generic linux build up soonish... but my VM now runs out of memory trying to build OpenGL - and adding more only makes my machine thrash to death!
