While configuring ghc binary distribution on Solaris I've noted that settings file is not correctly generated:

$ cat settings 
[("GCC extra via C opts", " -fwrapv"),
 ("C compiler command", "/usr/sfw/bin/gcc"),
 ("C compiler flags", " "),
 ("ar command", "/usr/xpg4/bin/ar"),
 ("ar flags", "clqs"),
 ("ar supports at file", "@ArSupportsAtFile@"),
 ("touch command", "touch"),
 ("dllwrap command", "/bin/false"),
 ("windres command", "/bin/false"),
 ("perl command", "/usr/bin/perl"),
 ("target os", "OSSolaris2"),
 ("target arch", "ArchX86"),
 ("target word size", "4"),
 ("target has GNU nonexec stack", "True"),
 ("target has .ident directive", "True"),
 ("target has subsections via symbols", "False"),
 ("LLVM llc command", "llc"),
 ("LLVM opt command", "opt")

Looks like @ArSupportsAtFile@ is not filled with the right value.

  • Architecture changed from x86_64 (amd64) to Unknown/Multiple
  • Operating System changed from Solaris to Unknown/Multiple
  • Priority changed from normal to lowest
  • Type changed from bug to task
  • Type of failure changed from Installing GHC failed to None/Unknown

this entry looks the same for me also under linux and Mac OSX so it seems to be unused.
