Will a binary version of 6.8.2 be released any time
soon for Mac OS X 10.5.x Leopard running on a PowerPC,
as opposed to an Intel?

I have a first-generation aluminum PowerBook with a
PowerPC currently running Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar, and
am considering upgrading to Leopard next month, but
want to install GHC 6.8.2 on it with a binary.

Does this mean that I should not upgrade to that OS
