As far as I know -- and I wish to be wrong -- there is no known way to get a
fully working ghc-6.8.x on OS 10.5.y on the PowerPC (PPC) architecture.
I spent some free time helping debug the ghc-6.8 release, which led to a patch
for some of the problems being applied in ghc-6.8.1. But a few other problems
remain, I suggest looking at open ghc trac tickets on the powerpc architecture.
I still use ghc-6.6.1 for now.
