Description

The tarball at http://www.haskell.org/ghc/dist/6.4.1/ghc-6.4.1-x86_64-unknown-linux.tar.bz2 contains broken symbolic links, and therefore ghc cannot be run:

# ls -l ghc-6.4.1/bin/x86_64-unknown-linux/

Whoops, I didn't read the installation instructions!

Still a little confusing though to have broken links there. Ideally they would be placeholders that would say "You need to follow the installation instructions first".
