ghc 7.8: ghc-split not installed

These are the steps I run to build and install (to prepare for packaging):
./sync-all -r git://git.haskell.org get -b ghc-7.8 ./boot ./configure --prefix=/usr make -j 5 make DESTDIR=/path/to/prepackage/dir install
The build itself works fine, the installed binaries work for simple tests like compiling hello, world, starting ghci, etc. However, building mtl failed with
Configuring mtl-2.1.2... Building mtl-2.1.2... Preprocessing library mtl-2.1.2... [ 1 of 21] Compiling Control.Monad.Writer.Class ( Control/Monad/Write/Class.hs, dist/build/Control/Monad/Writer/Class.o ) ghc: could not execute: /usr/lib/ghc-18.104.22.16840204/ghc-split
So it seems ghc-split isn't installed by make install. It also isn't included in the output of make binary-dist.
I've seen this on both x86 and x86_64.
