When building this old version of Haskell on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard), PPC, the build process ends here:

/opt/local/var/macports/build/  -H32m -O -L/opt/local/var/macports/build/ -I/opt/local/include -L/opt/local/lib -optc-O2 -I../includes -I. -Iparallel -Ism -DCOMPILING_RTS -package-name rts -static  -I/opt/local/include -I../gmp/gmpbuild -I../libffi/build/include -I. -dcmm-lint     -c Apply.cmm -o Apply.o
make[1]: *** [Apply.o] Segmentation fault (core dumped)
make: *** [stage1] Error 2
shell command " cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/" && /usr/bin/make all " returned error 2

Packages installed are:

gmp 5.0.2
autoconf 2.6.3
perl 5.8.9
libiconv 1.13.1
ncurses 5.9
ncursesw 5.8

make is 3.81, the GNU Compiler Collections used are 4.0.1 and 4.2.1. The archives used are: ghc-6.10.4-src.tar.bz2, ghc-6.10.4-src-extralibs.tar.bz2, testsuite-6.10.4.tar.bz2, ghc-6.10.1-darwin-ppc-leopard-bootstrap.tar.bz2. Their checksums were OK.

Other users of the MacPorts packages system for Mac OS X have reported similar failures:,

As a MacPorts user I have to use what the maintainers provide. Anyway, with the Fink packages manager I'll try to build Haskell 7.0.4! (And see how it works with LLVM.)

I'm assuming that you're doing a registerised build, but I'm afraid that PowerPC isn't a tier 1 platform, so only unregisterised builds are supported.
