hmm. I suppose I am using the term "Solaris" fairly loosely!
My build environment contains:
GNU binutils 2.20
GNU coreutils 8.4
GNU make 3.81
GNU m4 1.4.13
GNU sed 4.2
GNU tar 1.20
GNU grep 2.5
That's all the stuff I had to install to get it to compile, and with the same environment the head now builds with 6.12.1 as the bootstrap compiler. That's using the standard "perf" and "devel" settings in mk/build.mk as well, ie without needing to go via-c.
I'll add the package versions to the developer's wiki.
Ian: you might want to add these versions to the GHC page, else link to the developers wiki with a note saying that people should install this stuff first to avoid pain.
