I couldn't find a release notes document for Mac OS X but unpacking the
.pkg file shows it has GHC 7.0.3.

Hackage shows that mongoDB-1.0.1 has been the latest package compiled with
GHC 7.0. For GHC 6.x it's mongoDB-0.8.1.

You might have more luck upgrading the Haskell Platform or choosing a older
version of mongoDB.

 You can install it under a different username.
