Seems OK, thanks.

ghc411hack_dir does not work for me again: ghc -M in build/ghc4/chs/lib
can't find NewStablePtr.hs (because there is only
and the whole 'make depend' there fails, without removing files
conflicing with ghc' libraries. The failure of 'make depend' is
ignored and finally 'make' there fails to compile C2HS.hs.

I've seen the hack, but on another box freshly installed ghc-4.08.2,
c2hs from tarball and gtk+hs from tarball did not work (linker can't
find rts_mkPtr). I must see if ghcRtsAux.c is compied at all there.

ghc version check fails on 4.11 (it should be lexicographic comparison
of version number components, not conjunction of independent

Checking for buggy readXXXOffAddr (for ghc-4.03..4.06) is now
unnecessary as gtk+hs requires ghc-4.08.1 anyway.
