I have a PPC laptop with OS 10.5.1 Leopard.

The ghc-6.8.1 does not work.  Though there is limited success if you only ever
use -fvia-C.  Fixing one problem (
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1843 ) has merely revealed another (
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1958 ).

The problem is being worked on.  But you will not get (PPC && Leopard &&
ghc-6.8) yet.
