[Haskell-cafe] PSA: do not install xcode 5 if you are using ghc 7.6

glad to help.

an alternative for the discerning power user is to install a recent version
of gcc locally (eg 4.8), and build 7.6.3 with that! (or just repoint your
ghc settings file to a locally built version of real gcc.)

yes, assuming we have the time (after all, it's all volunteer time), that
is the plan.
