Great.  Then, I think I know what to do.  I'll add a new option to  
configure to specify what Apple calls the "deployment target" of a GHC  
build.  By using 10.4 as the deployment target we can then build GHC  
distributions in any form (installer, binary dist, or local installs)  
for 10.4 on a 10.5 box.  However, some extra fiddling will be required  
to make sure utilities, such as ghc-pkg, are also properly cross- 

I'll let you know when I have got a new GHC installer using this
