I got it, but there were some download problems. I hope the
file is intact. It has exactly 44740924 bytes. Perhaps you
could send me an md5sum to be certain.

It did.

It didn't.

$ /usr/bin/ghci
Bus error

In the readme, you say that I require Xcode 3.0. Tiger came with
Xcode 2.4.1, and I have not updated it. (I tried once, but the
download was so huge that I decided to forget it unless there
was some real need.) Could that be part of the problem?
