Description

Trying to rebuild 6.4.2 with 6.4.2 or 6.4.1 fails for me:
../utils/ghc-pkg/ghc-pkg-inplace --force --update-package <package.conf.inplace
Reading package info from stdin ... done.
h:\src-with-old-ghc\ghc-6.4.2.20060411"\ghc\rts" doesn't exist or isn't a directory (ignoring)
h:\src-with-old-ghc\ghc-6.4.2.20060411"\ghc\rts\gmp" doesn't exist or isn't a directory (ignoring)
h:\src-with-old-ghc\ghc-6.4.2.20060411"\ghc\includes" doesn't exist or isn't a directory (ignoring)

The reason seems to be some mssing single quotes in package.mk.
-DFPTOOLS_TOP_ABS=\"${FPTOOLS_TOP_ABS}\"
to
-DFPTOOLS_TOP_ABS='\"${FPTOOLS_TOP_ABS}\"'
fixes that problem.

But maybe I have some other prblem that causes this?

Fixed as suggested, certainly the quoting on that line is different to the others. However, it always "worked for me", so I'm not sure what was different in your environment to cause it to show up.
