Do you have an install DVD with no Xcode on it?  I have it on a
10.6 DVD, when would this have happened (or stopped happening)?

But you don't need Xcode 4, do you?  The Xcode 3 that comes with
the install DVD will work fine!

The text on the GHC download page should provide abundant clues to
the process and requirements.  I think it makes sense to believe
what the port maintainer says there, for starters anyway.
