ANNOUNCE: ghc-6.4 for OS X Tiger using Darwinports

For users of Mac OS X Tiger, ghc-6.4 can now be built from source
using the darwinports infrastructure.

Special thanks to Wolfgang Thaller, for sharing some love with the
mangler, making it just a little bit less evil.

The build uses gcc-3.3. Using gcc-4.0 still produces some errors.

Users updating from Panther should be sure they have installed
the new Xcode tools that come with Tiger.  Building on Tiger
using the Panther toolchain will lead to frustration and misery.
