Sorry for the late response, but just out of curiosity, are there any
plans to provide a binary installer for either the Haskell Platform or
GHC 6.12.1 for Mac OS X Leopard for the PowerPC CPU (as opposed to for
the Intel x86 CPU)?  I just checked the download-related Web sites for
both the Haskell Platform for the Mac (see
http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/mac.html) and for GHC 6.12.1 (see
http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download_ghc_6_12_1.html), but could find no
relevant information.

Currently, I'm using GHC 6.8.2, but this is an outdated version.
