[ I presume you have a good reason for needing GHC 3.02 - I'd be =
interested to know what it is! ]

It looks like that the ghc-2.10 binaries you are using don't work well =
with the version of Linux (in particular the version of the C library) =
that you're using.  Probably the only way to get going is to bootstrap =
from the .hc files for 3.02.
