Just the right place for this sort of question.

It's helpful to use Gmane for searching rather than trying to puzzle through 
the SF archive page, I find.

Have you considered adopting some sort of package management/installation 
software like Homebrew or MacPorts?

It could make life a lot easier than trying to build things by hand.

I just tend to shrug and ignore the issue myself (using a 64 bit GHC)

I think the basic story is that  wxHaskell 0.13 is easier for Windows, and 0.90 
for Mac. You need it for 64 bit GHC, and it works fine with 32 bit, so rather 
than struggle to correctly maintain two sets of install instructions, we just 
went with the latter.
