I was slow to reply, in part so I could try this again with a fresh
start from the tarballs. Sure enough, it now works for me.
What I /was/ seeing was a successful compile and install of ghc, but no
readline functionality in ghci (i.e. backspaces gave me junk).

I have both, but I've been using the x86.

Yep, a binary distro of 6.8.1 was right.
I must have failed to dot an 'i' somewhere before. Thanks for pointing me
in the right direction.
