[Haskell-cafe] Haskell-platform and ghc 7.4

Hi.  What has worked for me is to install a binary package for 7.4.1:


You can install it someplace special by giving
--prefix=/someplace/special to the configure script.  Then, adjust
your path to hit /someplace/special/bin before it hits the location of
your GHC 7.2.

Maybe there's a preferred way, but this works for me (juggling 6.12.3,
7.0.4 and 7.4.1).
