I tried an install - got some strange errors, so cleaned out my Haskell installation using uninstall-hs, re-installed latest platform
Edited .cabal/config to have global installation and to use sudo when required
cabal update
cabal install cabal-install
cabal install wx cacal-macosx (on Mac OS X 9.2, by the way)

Both cabal-install and wx were reported as being installed , but in both cases it ended with an error message like this:

 —— console log excerpt starts ——
Installed wx-
Error while Error while updating world-file. : /Users/butrfeld/Library/Haskell/logs/world: openFile: permission denied (Permission denied)
Warning: could not create a symlink in /Users/butrfeld/Library/Haskell/bin for
wxdirect because the file exists there already but is not managed by cabal.
You can create a symlink for this executable manually if you wish. The
executable file has been installed at
— console log ecxeprt ends ——

Can i ignore these, or do I need to fix something? like the symlink that is mentioned?

(PS - I also did the ghc-clang-wrapper thing…)
