ghc-asm has a poor shebang

During a cabal install of Snap and its dependency bytestring-mmap, ghc-asm complained that it couldn't run.
$ cabal install bytestring-mmap-0.2.1 Resolving dependencies... Configuring bytestring-mmap-0.2.1... Preprocessing library bytestring-mmap-0.2.1... Building bytestring-mmap-0.2.1... [1 of 3] Compiling System.IO.Posix.MMap.Internal ( System/IO/Posix/MMap/Internal.hs, dist/build/System/IO/Posix/MMap/Internal.o ) ghc: could not execute: /Library/Frameworks/GHC.framework/Versions/612/usr/lib/ghc-6.12.3/ghc-asm cabal: Error: some packages failed to install: bytestring-mmap-0.2.1 failed during the building phase. The exception was: ExitFailure 1
Upon further investigation, it was determined that ghc-asm wouldn't run due to its shebang.
$ less /Library/Frameworks/GHC.framework/Versions/612/usr/lib/ghc-6.12.3/ghc-asm #!/opt/local/bin/perl $TARGETPLATFORM = "i386-apple-darwin";
I installed MacPorts in ~/macports, not /opt/local. When GHC was installed, it should have used the shebang
which does not depend on MacPorts being installed in /opt/local, or for that matter MacPorts being installed at all.
