MacPorts, Snow Leopard, and GHC == Sadness

Wow, it has been a long time since I've had anything to say on this particular blog. Another baby (we're at four now) will do that to a guy, I guess.

I was going to do a little exploratory coding tonight, and so installed XCode, then MacPorts, then tried to install GHC. MacPorts tells me (after installing most of the components) that "ghc is not yet supported on Mac OS X 10.6.x (SnowLeopard)."

I know it hasn't been out very long, but the APIs have supposedly been frozen since May, so I'm a bit surprised.

I guess I'll see if the package installer works, but I was hoping to go a little more cutting-edge.
