Yup, the toplevel rigid type-variable problem seems to have been fixed,
thanks.  nhc98 now builds as expected with ghc-6.4.

BTW, there seems to be a small documentation-packaging fault in the
linux binary distribution.  You may be aware of it already.

    $ make install
    if test -d share/html; \
    then cp -r share/html/* /usr/malcolm/local/share/ghc-6.4.20050227/html; \
    for i in share/*.ps; do \
            cp $i /usr/malcolm/local/share/ghc-6.4.20050227 ; \
    cp: cannot stat `share/*.ps': No such file or directory
