| Works, but the first line of output is strange:
| checking for GHC version date... darcs: getFdStatus: invalid argument
| (Bad file descriptor)
This happens to me on Windows (you don't say which platform you are on), and its always because I'm getting the Windows/System32 sort, instead of the Unix sort. I fix it by putting msys in my path before Windows.
The error message is v confusing. And my error message isn't the same as yours, so it might not be the same problem. However the "GHC version date" thing seems to invoke a number of commands, and if any of them get the "wrong" one, thing will probably fail strangely.
