Subject: binary-dists for ghc-6.8.2

Dear all,

I've built binary distributions for Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger) based on (better
supported) GMP and GNUreadline frameworks and for Solaris 10.

http://www.dfki.de/sks/hets/mac/versions/ghc-6.8.2-powerpc-apple-darwin.tar.bz2
http://www.dfki.de/sks/hets/intel-mac/versions/ghc-6.8.2-i386-apple-darwin.tar.bz2

The frameworks under
http://www.haskell.org/ghc/dist/mac_frameworks/mac_e.htm
should do.

The Mac binaries have been built using
gcc version 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5367)
and a patched Linker.lhs from
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1798
(also the files compiler/main/DriverPipeline.hs and utils/hsc2hs/Main.hs
are patched according to http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1395)

The PPC binary still features:
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1845

The PPC ghc can be used on Intel Macs with the additional options:
  -optc-arch -optcppc -opta-arch -optappc -optl-arch -optlppc
(but that's slower than an i386 binary).

The Intel-Mac binary has also a patched file rts/Exception.cmm for
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1980
(although I don't know
if it is a Mac problem at all.)

The Solaris 10 binaries have been built using gcc-4.2.2

http://www.dfki.de/sks/hets/pc-solaris/versions/ghc-6.8.2-i386-unknown-solaris2.tar.bz2
http://www.dfki.de/sks/hets/solaris/versions/ghc-6.8.2-sparc-sun-solaris2.tar.bz2

The sparc binary was built on a "sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-280R" using:
  SRC_HC_OPTS += -optc-mcpu=ultrasparc -opta-mcpu=ultrasparc

Maybe these binary-dists are somehow useful.
