Using GHC to compile C programs that includes <CoreServices/CoreServices.h> will result in the following error:

This is because somewhere down CoreServices.h it includes Block.h, and expects it to be /usr/include/Block.h, which is a new file introduced since Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6). This is in direct conflict to the Block.h under GHC's include directory, which is somehow searched prior to the system directory.
