Which directions are those?  If they somehow tell users of Fedora to
download tarballs, they should be rectified to instruct users to 'yum
install ghc' instead.

Well - readline 4 *is* available on FC6, while presumably there exist
other distributions that haven't upgraded to readline 5 yet.  Since FC6
and most other updated distributions ship ghc as a native package, I'm
not convinced this is an unreasonable default.
