That's incorrect. The 32-bit version is only partially working. GHCi
dies with a bus error (after package loading) and various features
that need the interpreter/dynamic loading (such as TH and annotations)
die under certain circumstances.
Disclaimer: I didn't actually test this with 6.12.1RC1, but with
6.13. However, there shouldn't be any difference as I am not aware of
any 6.12.1-specific Mac fixes.
PS: I am chasing these bugs, but I don't have a lot of time for that
at the moment, they are tricky bugs, and my Mac-fu is still pretty
limited. So, if anybody else likes to have a go with gdb and dtrace,
please do so.
