ANNOUNCE: GHC 7.10.1 Release Candidate 2

Has anybody successfully build and used this on the Mac on 10.10 using the
latest XCode? While it is better than RC1 I am still seeing the following
two issues:

   - programs compiled with llvm fail at runtime with illegal instruction
   - calling main from the ghci inerpreter after loading compiled code
   results in
   - Prelude Main> main
      Too late for parseStaticFlags: call it before runGhc or runGhcT
      *** Exception: ExitFailure 1

Instead of solving the above, I'd be happy to switch to a Mac OS bindist
and see if I have the same problems there. Do we have an ETA for a Mac OS
