Hi, all! I am trying to create unregisterized build of GHC 6.4. In distrib/cross-port I changed path and execute this script.

After prints ==fptools== make all -wr;

in /home/kyukhin/work/ghx-6.4/ghc/compiler

builds says nothing at all (I'm wat for two weeks )) ) System: Ubuntu Dapper Drake make - 3.81beta4

Also I tryed to do it on some other machines ( Xeon servers if Red Hat Enterprise). And got the same result.

Can you explain, is it a bug, or my mistake?

Best Regards, Yukhin Kirill (kirill.yukhin@…)

You have probably encountered the problem with GNU make that we worked around recently (or maybe it was our problem, I'm still not entirely sure).

First of all, you should use GHC 6.4.2 at least for bootstrapping.

Secondly, I don't think we recommend using the cross-port script. Full instructions for bootstrapping are in the Building Guide:

Finally, I can't believe you waited two weeks for some output!

If you still run into problems, submit another report.
