What a mess....

Because some libraries' darcs have been updated to fit 6.10. And I do 
not want to check every library's stable version before I darcs it. So I 
decide to install ghc-6.10.
I have tried a few times, no special action needed, just build 6.10, and 
as it requires, install the rest. Then, it cannot be made.

I will try the binary distribution. Well binary of 6.8 cannot run in my box.
