I'll try to collect my thoughts and tease out what did/didn't work tomorrow,
in the mean time, here's a build I believe should work for everyone on mac
and should have full docs,

shasum -a512 ghc-

one niggling issue is that, at least based upon the output of otool -L, the
builds point to  /usr/local/lib/gcc/6/libgcc_s.1.dylib
(my userland GCC leaking through)
and I *believe* but could be wrong that its better to have it point
to /usr/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib or something?
otoh, the otool -L output of those respective things are VERY different

I will investigate that further, though its orthogonal to my doc building
confusion that I still need to work out what happened with
