While I have not seen that specific error, I did have many problems
building GHC on my PPC Mac OS X 10.4 machine. They were all fixed by
upgrading to a more recent version of the XCode and developer tools
( I am currently on 2.3, I have not tried the more recent 2.4 ).
Hope that helps. If not, e-mail me directly and we can might be able
to work through the issues.
Now, if someone has some hints about how to compile GHC on a
PowerBook G4 in less than 36 hours, I am all ears :)
