Did a macports install of glade (took ages!), gtkglext, gconf, glut.
Reran configure/make/make install for gtk2hs

Also did macports install of hs-cabal, then
cabal update
cabal install opengl
cabal install glut

Was a little confused for a while because Porticus (ports GUI) was out 
of date.

Maybe I could have installed ghc, hs-cabal + all gtk preconditions, and 
then installed gtk2hs++ via cabal?

Anyway, the opengl demo and the glade demos run now, and if I need 
mozembed and similar, I trust I will be able to get them in in a similar 

Thanks for helping, I am looking forward to creating GUIs.
