[Haskell-cafe] Must be a FAQ - Can't make install Hugs98-Nov2003 on MacOSX 10.3.8

The hugs98-20041101 snapshot builds without trouble on OS X 10.3.8.
(It's the one I use in darwinports for hugs98-devel).  Our standard DP 
is still the Nov2002 version, since I was never able to get the Nov2003 
to build properly.

(If your not familiar with darwinports, see 
It is in some ways similar to fink, but is intended to be a more 
flexible building/
packaging infrastructure.)

If you do decide to set up darwinports on your system, you can build the
20041101 snapshot from source by typing

	sudo port install hugs98-devel

Remember to add the darwinports binary directory (/opt/local/bin by 
to your path.

If you want to watch the progress of the build, use

	sudo port -dv install hugs98-devel

(the -dv option gives you verbose debugging, and will let you see all
of the output from the build).

Best Wishes,
