AR_STAGE0 gets set to:
ghc --info spits out:
I'll try the latest Haskell platform installer next.
Haskell platform is 2011.2.0.1 which is ghc-7.0.2 and doesn't output the ar.exe line from --info.
I forced AR_STAGE0 to the inplace mingw/bin/ar.exe path via manually editing config.status.
CC_STAGE0 had a similar problem.
7.2.1 standalone printed:
which turned into: opdir../mingw/bin/gcc.exe while trying to ghc-cabal.exe configure libraries/Cabal/cabal
Forcing CC_STAGE0 to $$topdir/.... didn't help either.
So i fixed CC_STAGE0 to inplace/mingw/bin/gcc.exe. Now ghc-cabal is configuring away.
