Was someone able to build ghc 6.8.2 on PPC with OS X 10.4 (Tiger) ?
I had no problems to build the 6.8.1 but with 6.8.2, I get the error:

../../compiler/stage1/ghc-inplace -package-name base- -hide- 
all-packages -split-objs -i -idist/build/autogen -idist/build -i. - 
Idist/build -Iinclude -#include "HsBase.h" -odir dist/build -hidir  
dist/build -stubdir dist/build -package rts-1.0 -O -fglasgow-exts - 
package-name base -XCPP -idist/build  -H16m -O -O -Rghc-timing - 
fgenerics -c Data/Generics/Twins.hs -o dist/build/Data/Generics/ 
Twins.o  -ohi dist/build/Data/Generics/Twins.hi
ghc-6.8.2: panic! (the 'impossible' happened)
   (GHC version 6.8.2 for powerpc-apple-darwin):

Please report this as a GHC bug:
