I would like to help, but my time is limited and my knowledge of GHC
internals is nearly non-existent.  I am, however, very interested in
seeing GHC run on Mac Intel.  I particularly want to see the full STM
mechanism, including "check", running on the Mac.  Are there small
pieces of this problem that I could help with?
