 I am using the latest ubuntu and tried to build haskell-

 after running {{{ configure }}} I attempt to run {{{ make }}} and get the
 following error


 * Configuration completed successfully.
 *   Install prefix: /usr/local
 *     Haskell packages will be registered into
 *     the global ghc package database
 *   If you wish to change these settings then
 *   use --prefix= and/or --enable-user-install
 * Now do "make" followed by "sudo make install"
 "/usr/bin/ghc" "--make" "Setup" "-o" "Setup" "-package" "Cabal-"
