make install DESTDIR=$image is failing currently with ghc HEAD. This is the method distro packages use so it'll need fixing before 6.12.1.

The failing command is on the first instance of ghc-cabal install for the libs:

"inplace/bin/ghc-cabal" install image/usr/... etc
ghc-cabal: ghc-pkg dump failed

Unfortunately, it does not give any more info if I pass -v3. That flag seems to be swallowed rather than passed down.
