Thanks for that, the configure script gets to the end with that help.
Following the instructions at
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/Porting#PortingGHCtoanewplatform , I then try to make includes but get a big stream of errors from make. Why is this?
$ cd includes
make: "/arpa/j/jim/ghc-6.8.2/includes/../mk/boilerplate.mk" line 38:
Need an operator
make: "/arpa/j/jim/ghc-6.8.2/includes/../mk/boilerplate.mk" line 41:
