Just wondering, what XCode has to do with all that. I never use it  
too, which is why I don't even know that there is some project list to  
choose from.

No, but it comes with wxHaskell.

http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/WxHaskell/MacOS_X - works for me.

On the contrary, it shows that there isn't anything you have to  
customize. Just run it and enjoy the results.
