Common build problems

General builds

GCC 4 issues

It has been observed on Gentoo systems that GCC 4 may fail, complaining about there being no -nopie option. You can either use GCC 3, re-emerge ghc or just edit your /usr/bin/ghc script to remove the -nopie flag (the latter is by far the quickest and is perfectly safe).

Building from the Darcs tree

Distribution/Compat/FilePath.hs:2: error: Cabal/Distribution/Compat/FilePath.hs: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [depend] Error 1
make: *** [stage1] Error 1
Possible Solution
Be sure you have run sh darcs-all get to get all necessary packages. Don't forget to run autoreconf again after you pull in new packages.
