in thread How much Perl6 have we got?

*** GHC 6.4.0 cannot work with GCC 4.0 on Mac OS X. Please use "sudo gcc_select 3.3" to pick an earlier version of gcc, or set the CC environment variable to "/usr/bin/gcc-3.3".

If you've already installed Xcode you just need to sudo gcc_select 3.3 to continue from this point - there is no need to install those hs-plugins. If you haven't installed Xcode, you can find it on your Tiger-cd.

    I got it figured out and it's installing now. Couple questions . . . is it necessary to have the hs-plugins working? Does it make the job easier if I have this working? What does this 0plugin do exactly, anyway?
      hs-plugins lets you say
      eval_haskell(' -- haskell code here ');
      in a perl 6 program.

      As for 'make' not being rerun in the CPAN shell, 'force install' should fix it... CPAN tends to be a little overzealous, and does not retry a build that failed in the same session.

      gcc 3.3 should have solved things for you, but then CPAN refused to try again, and that's why it worked later.

    Well, unfortunately, I haven't been able to get it to install successfully. Several errors having to do with io, haskell, etc. I posted the error messages I got when it was going through the make test process on a mac perl list and as of now, there hasn't been any responses. So, it looks like I'm going to have to wait for Pugs to be a bit more mature before trying again (and meanwhile, if there's anyone in here who's been able to successfully get Pugs installed in their OS X system, I'd love to learn your secrets!).
      Sorry, it worked for me, without any further problems, the way I described it.
        Can you describe your setup? What were the steps you took to install Pugs?
