[Haskell-cafe] ghc-7.4 on CentOS-5.8 ?

Dear all, 

I need a recent ghc on a not-so-recent (?) CentOS.

The ghc binary package (7.2 or 7.4) does not work
because of a mismatch in the libc version.

ghc-7.0 is working but when I use it to compile 7.4,
it breaks with some linker error (relocation R_X86_64_PC32 ...)
it also suggests "recompile with -fPIC" but I don't see how.

(In this particular case, I absolutely cannot change/update the OS.)

Thanks, J.W.
