It occurs that we need first to install  ghc-6.0 
   i386-unknown, RedHat Linux platform.

Our administrator says here is a difficulty: 

a) it is hard for us to install from sources,
b) binary RPM would not do, due to library versions etc.,
c) we need  
           source RPM  distributive,

   similar as we used when installing  ghc-5.04.3.

   But  ghc-6.0  does not show any source RPM distributive.

Please, what can we do about this?
