I downloaded and tested the archive.

The installation from this archive works in the sense that I can run 
ghc-9.5, but then it looks not right. E.g. most files in


are owned by the private user who unpacked the tarball and ran configure. 
The permissions are exclusive to this user. Instead, they should belong to 
'root' and have read and executable permissions for all users.

I installed by the usual steps:

$ tar xf ...
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ghc-9.5
$ sudo make install

The 'sudo' before 'make' should install all files for user 'root', not the 
private user.
