I've created a statically linked ghc-6.8.2 for PPC Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger). http://www.dfki.de/sks/hets/mac/versions/ghc-6.8.2-powerpc-apple-darwin-static-libs.tar.bz2
When linking our big hets binary after compilation with optimization I get millions (actually 34999 lines) of entries like:
/usr/bin/ld: PGIP/XMLparsing.o relocation overflow for relocation entry 63 in section (__TEXT,__text) (displacement too large) ... /usr/bin/ld: SoftFOL/Sign.o relocation overflow for relocation entry 45280 in section (__TEXT,__text) (displacement too large) collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [hets] Error 1
I had such messages before and got rid of them by rearranging code and imports (just by wild guesses, a strategy would be helpful). It is sort of a known (Apple PPC) deficiency (and I misuse this ticket to document it here).
Linking works fine after compilation without optimization or when linking against GMP and GNUreadline frameworks using my other binary distribution.
