[Haskell-cafe] Building Haskell Platform on PowerPC?

For reference, I'm wondering whether there's an easier way to build
the current version of the Haskell Platform on a PowerPC Mac running
Mac OS 10.5.8 than the way in which I documented at:

I was installing the platform from scratch as a favor for a colleague
who didn't have any version of GHC installed on his machine, and I
just couldn't find a simpler way than installing two other versions of
GHC first.

Just curious if anyone has done it. I realize PPC is unsupported.
