#84: generic source hp does not build with generic linux binary ghc
 Reporter:  martin.k.tang at gmail.com  |       Owner:  duncan
     Type:  defect                   |      Status:  new   
 Priority:  major                    |   Milestone:        
Component:  Generic source tarball   |    Keywords:        
 I downloaded the following:
  - http://haskell.org/ghc/dist/6.10.4/ghc-6.10.4-i386-unknown-
  - http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/2009.2.0.2/haskell-

 The ghc generic linux binary comes with libraries that are also included
 in the haskell platform.

 On make, the platform script will happily report that:
   Platform package x is already installed. Skipping...

 On make install, the platform script will unhappily report that:
   The x/Setup script does not exist or cannot be run
   make: *** [install] Error 2

 I've worked around it by commenting out the part in build.sh that skips
 packages if they're already installed, but I assume that's not The Right
 Thing to do.
