gitis in the installation — check
perl boot— check
./configure— breaks, linker does not find
gmpfrom sources, and installed it into my home directory.
But... it still did not build :-(
As always, Stack Overflow for the win!
setenv LIBRARY_PATH $HOME/lib
did the trick.
For good measure I also added
to the configure line, but this might be redundant?
(Another thought, find seems to reveal some
/usr, I might point it there.)
./configure ...— check
The part that involves building was the pleasure part:
nice make -j14— check
Then I dared running the test suite:
make test— check
This step takes its time, as it is not parallelizable.
There is only one drop of bitterness, namely the
stage2compiler does not run on RHEL5. But that is something I did not expect, actually.
make install— check
nothing unexpected here.
Have fun with GHC on RHEL6!
