Hmm, interesting. Then I am truly perplexed.

I'm not sure where this would be but at this point anything is possible. What 
if you try to install to do something like (in the extracted binary 

    $ ./configure --prefix=`pwd`/tmp
    $ make install            # this will fail
    $ xattr -rc .
    $ make install            # perhaps this will finish successfully?
    # tmp/bin/ghc --version   # GHC should be usable

Not to worry; it's a very reasonable question to ask given the circumstances.

Ultimately I think we may just need to bite the bullet and start
properly notarising/codesigning releases (resolving #17418). At this point we 
spent more time trying to avoid the notarisation requirement than
it would likely take to satisfy it. Unfortunately, this will require
that I find an Apple device somewhere which may take a few weeks.

I'm afraid I am on holiday next week but I would quite grateful if we
could arrange for a chat after I return such that we can debug this in
