As far as I know -- and I wish to be wrong -- there is no known way to get a 
fully working ghc-6.8.x on OS 10.5.y on the PowerPC (PPC) architecture.

I spent some free time helping debug the ghc-6.8 release, which led to a patch 
for some of the problems being applied in ghc-6.8.1.  But a few other problems 
remain, I suggest looking at open ghc trac tickets on the powerpc architecture.

I still use ghc-6.6.1 for now.
