Try this

It's a quick build of todays HEAD with only the boot libraries.  Have  
a look whether that installs on Tiger (I am pretty sure it will) and  
whether you can run /usr/bin/ghci (not so sure about that).  If it  
works that far, please compile some small Haskell program and see  
whether you can run the compiled program.  If we are very lucky and  
all of this works, please try to compile ghc itself with the compiler  
in the package.


PS: It's a dmg this time around, because apparently only 10.5 packages  
are single file archives.
