One problem left was:

m29:fastcgi-3001.0.1 maeder$ ./Setup build
Segmentation fault

I could work around this by using "runghc Setup.lhs build" (and only got
distrubing warnings that I could ignore).

I've tried to debug the problem, but only got the following after typing
"run" twice in gdb on Intel Leopard:

(gdb) run
Starting program: /Users/Shared/maeder/haskell/fastcgi-3001.0.1/Setup build
arch: posix_spawnp: /Users/Shared/maeder/haskell/fastcgi-3001.0.1/Setup:
Bad CPU type in executable

Program exited with code 01.

Could you create a ticket for this problem and investigate it further?
