Fixing GHC for xcode 5 and OS X 10.9 Mavericks

October 31, 2013

I tried to install the Haskell snap web server today and had problems. The skein dependency failed to build. Luckily Mark Lentczner (mzero) has already gotten to the bottom of this issue and released a script that we Mac people can use to patch GHC 7.x to get around the problem.

Just download and run this patch. It worked well for me and Iā€™m back in business. Thanks Mark!
