FWIW my experience is that my experience of getting GHC running on a
Mac got dramatically better as soon as I bought an Intel based mac.
Firstly the compile times are *vastly* reduced (we're talking from 24
hours to 1 hour, or even 20 minutes on a Mac Pro). Secondly, and more
importantly, more people seem to have intel macs, and are willing to
devote their time to getting it working nicely on them, so in general,
you tell it to build once, and it works.
