I have such a machine (and it still works fine).  I'm pretty sure,
though, that I had to manually compile GHC for the last two releases.
Either due to some installer issue (10.6 required) or because of a
missing bindist which would allow me to put it into a custom
directory.  So, as long as this path is still available I don't mind
dropping a the 32bit platform installer.

Push the envelope. Watch it bend.
