[Haskell-cafe] ghc-6.7.20070330 on Mac OS X

There is also a special page all about building GHC on MaxOSX
If it doesn't explain enough about readline (e.g. does it include "the nice post from the blogosphere"?), perhaps someone can enhance it?
In general, when building GHC, the place to look is
and there are architecture-specific sub-pages.
Do please add painfully-learned information to these wiki pages! thanks

| It is well known that the readline lib that comes with OS X is no
