Looking at the buildlog here:

the build goes:

mkdir -p gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget_split
/usr/bin/ghc -split-objs gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget.hs -o gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget.o
if test -f gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget.o; then :;
else find gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget_split/ -name '*.o'
         > gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget_split/list;
     /usr/bin/ld -r -x -o gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget.o @gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget_split/list;
./mk/ libHSgtk.a [...] gtk/Graphics/UI/Gtk/Abstract/Widget.o [...]

and looks like:

for obj in $@; do
        dir=`dirname ${obj}`/`basename ${obj} .o`_split
        if test -d ${dir}; then
                find ${dir}/ -name '*.o' >> ${lib}.list
                echo ${obj} >> ${lib}.list

Debian's s390 is built with SplitObjs=NO, so the -split-objs flag is ignored. It looks like the gtk2hs build system copes with this when making the module .o file, by checking if the .o file already exists, but not when making the package archive, as that directory will always exist. So it will not include the object file in the archive.

I haven't actually done a build, so please reopen if you think I've missed something.

Marco claims he's done a build of gtk2hs using ./configure --disable-split-objs and it still failed. Hopefully he'll post a link to that and re-open this ticket.
