problem using ghc-6.5.20051122-i386-unknown-linux.tar.bz2

I downloaded ghc-6.5.20051122-i386-unknown-linux.tar.bz2 and tried to use it
(as bootstrap for building Haskell at first, but building Pugs fails the
same way)

It installed fine.

My attempts to compile something with it result with a following error:

ghc-6.5.20051122: could not execute: gcc-3.4.3
<<ghc: 16599408 bytes, 3 GCs, 123124/123124 avg/max bytes residency (1
samples), 15M in use, 0.00 IN
IT (0.00 elapsed), 0.11 MUT (0.21 elapsed), 0.02 GC (0.03 elapsed) :ghc>>

Indeed, the compiler I have has version gcc-3.3.4, and this mismatches with
gcc-3.4.3, also 

How should I avoid this problem?
Why having that precise requirement of GCC version?

Best regards,
