    11This page is meant to document the current state of GHC on Apple Mac OS X on Intel x86 hardware. 
    22 
    3 [http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/ DarwinPorts] still has GHC as not supported on x86. 
     3As of 2006-11-3, !MacPorts (formerly Darwinports, [http://www.macports.org/ MacPorts]) supports GHC 6.6 on x86.  The build is from source, 
     4using a binary bootstrap compiler and is "unix-style" in that it does not use frameworks. 
     5The maintainer is [mailto:[email protected] Gregory Wright]. 
     6 
     7The most common problems building ghc 6.6 using !MacPorts are not having an up-to-date Xcode and 
     8not cleaning up after a failed build.  You should verify that you have the latest Xcode from http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode. 
     9Downloading Xcode requires a free Apple Developer Connection membership.  Please note that 
     10Xcode updates are no longer distributed by Software Update -- you must manually download 
     11the latest version. 
     12 
     13If you have tried to build ghc under !MacPorts and had the build fail, you must do 
     14 
     15{{{ > sudo port clean ghc }}} 
     16 
     17before you start the build again.  Restarting a failed build is a common source of spurious build problems.
