Thanks, it's great you provided a binary distribution, especially
since macports' ghc seems to be broken on Leopard at the moment.
I had one little problem when linking with a dynamic library though
(darwin9 / i386):
ghc --make -O -hidir build/ifaces -odir build/objs Foreign/
YicesTest.hs -o bin/YicesTest -optl "-fexceptions" -lstdc++ -lyices
Linking bin/YicesTest ...
ld: absolute addressing (perhaps -mdynamic-no-pic) used in
___gmpn_divexact_1 from <ghc-6.8.1-dir>/lib/ghc-6.8.1/
libgmp.a(dive_1.o) not allowed in slidable image
I don't know if this is a known problem and what causes it, and I'm
not sure what it means;
However, replacing the 'libgmp.a' you've distributed with a recently
compiled one from macports (gmp 4.2.2_0) resolved the problem for me.
