AW: GHC and Panther (Mac OS X 10.3)

Hi again,
   Just to let you know that the responses did set me down the right 
path to get hmake to make - it needed me to use "sudo gcc_select 3" (to 
select gcc 3.1 as opposed to 3.3), there were still errors with gcc2.

Just out of interest though, the step below seemed to get rid of the 
main error when I was compiling with gcc3.3, (although still left a lot 
of messages).  It finally broke when hmake tried to bootstrap it's self 
and decided that the -p meant try to load the package gcc3, does anyone 
have any idea how to get round that?

Thanks a lot
