Could you also remove (or correct) the line
"It needs libncurses.5.dylib and libgmp.3.dylib under /opt/local/lib/"
for both Mac dists, because I've included gmp statically.

The two dists only rely on libiconv.2.dylib and libncurses.5.4.dylib
(and libSystem.B.dylib and libgcc_s.1.dylib) which should be under

Cheers Christian

P.S. I think, you can simply remove libgmp.a from a ghc installation and
try to link your own binaries dynamically against your own libgmp.3.dylib
