Thanks for that John,
You're absolutely right, I competely missed your point!!!!! Anyway I tried
building ghc form dports - it works after a fashion but there was no ghci
(took days and days as well :-)), so I tried your recipe. I got the
following error after "portsnap fetch extract" and then cd in to ghc dir in
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on file: /usr/local/share/xsl/docbook/html - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/xsltproc - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on executable: gmake - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/as - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/perl5.14.2 - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/autoconf-2.69 - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/autoconf - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on executable: gm4 - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on shared library: gmp.10 - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on shared library: ffi.6 - found
===> ghc-7.6.3 depends on shared library: iconv.3 - found
===> Configuring for ghc-7.6.3
configure: loading site script /usr/dports/Templates/config.site
checking for path to top of build tree... ELF interpreter
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1 not found
Abort trap: 6
configure: error: cannot determine current directory
*** Error code 1
make: stopped in /usr/ports/lang/ghc
vlad# find / -name "ld-elf.so*"
so the library is on my system, but the FreeBSD make can't find it.
