Yes, I have seen that it is noted that ghc is coming soon for OSX PPC, but I've got OSX x86 here, so I just like to make a note that there are OSX x86 users out there...

If necessary, I can help building a universal binary version(something that works natively on both PPC and Intel OSX) using my Intel Mac.

The [X86OSXGhc] wiki page is tracking these efforts and has a working binary build.

I think this issue is related to Ticket #964.

Because if compiler is provide as universal binay, user must be expect to build universal binary by it. And Xcode - Mac OS X's default developper tool - support to build universal binay.

So I think it's not comfortable that, if ghc is just provided as univesal binay and doesn't support to build universal binary.
