I made a similar observation.  Using -syslibroot in addition, fixed  
the problem for me.

Hold off another day or two and you get that automatically by just  
using --with-macos-deployment-target=10.4 with GHC's ./configure.   
(This will even enable you to generate a GHC build for 10.4 from a  
bootstrap compiler for 10.5, which is non-trivial due to the programs  
in utils/ and some other stuff.)
