Description

binary distribution ghc-7.6.2-x86_64-unknown-linux.tar.bz2
contains executable(s) that expect libgmp.so.3
but recent systems (Fedora 17) have libgmp.so.10 instead,
and I don't see how I could roll back.
No big deal, but each fix requires a recompile (of gmp, of ghc).

We should really advertise which distro(s) the binary dists work with. Ian?

I don't think that we want to try to keep a distro list up-to-date, but I've added a note that the builds require libgmp.so.3.

At least having a distro list of length one (the distro it was built on) would be better than nothing. We could add to the list on request if people find it works elsewhere.
