[Haskell-cafe] XCode Dependency for HP on Mac

As the README at that repository states, For 10.7 and later Apple now
distributes a "Command Line Tools" package on the developer site. When I
build and release the Haskell Platform, I confirm that works when just this
package is installed (rather than all of Xcode).

The Command Line Tools from Apple include not only the compiler and bin
tools that GHC needs, but also the full suite of development headers and
library stubs.

Many people's OS X woes with HP have stemmed from non-standard development
installations. If at all possible, I suggest you stick with
Apple's distributions.

Please keep us appraised of how it works for you after you've used it for a
bit. I'm curious if, should you start installing some of Hackage's more
complicated packages, if it continues to work out.
