GHC on powerpc (OS X): segmentation fault

I was using macports' binary ghc-6.8.2 so I also suspect this is the same as
#2380. Thankfully Christian Maeder's powerpc build is working for me. I have
rebuilt all my software and the packages they depend on.
I will update the macports error to point at the ghc trac error. The
compilation times for ghc itself are quote long on my hardware, as I learned
when trying and failing to get the early 6.8.x series to work on powerpc. Thus
I won't be stepping up to do the same for ghc-6.10.1 unless I find myself with a
much less bust life.
PS: I must say that ghc-6.10.1 appears to run much faster than ghc-6.8.3 on my
G4 laptop. Thanks :)
