Description (last modified by )
The ghc in Macports fails to build on my Intel MacBook, running Mac OS 10.5.2. Here's what Gregory Wright, the ghc macports maintainer had to say:
It is possible that this is yet another file locking bug, which seem especially easy to trigger when running OS X on faster hardware. The warning from PackageConfig.hs may be spurious, the result of the import from InstalledPackageInfo.hi silently failing. There are a few places where important error messages are discarded, on the assumption that the cause of the failure will be obvious.
I've attached the build log. I'd be happy to provide more information, if it might help.
