Hello, Ashley -
There's a bug open against ghc 6.6 regarding the time package, which
notes that it doesn't install HsTime.h or HsTimeConfig.h when being
If one already has a copy of the time darcs repo, it's still not obvious
how to build it. Please add a README with something like the following
instructions, as a bit of Googling shows that I am not the first person
to have spent a few minutes confused by this:
To build the time package, you must have GNU autoconf installed. Run
"autoreconf" before the usual Cabal build steps
(configure/build/install). There is no need to run the "configure"
script; the Cabal build process will do this for you.
Thank you for your help,
