Many packages build fine, but linking Yi fails with:

Linking dist/build/yi/yi ...
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lHSrts_thr

Indeed, there is no such file for 6.10:

$ find ~/usr -name "*HSrts*"

Strangley, compiling by hand  works:
$ ghc -cpp --make Main.hs -idist/build/autogen/
-idist/build/yi/yi-tmp/ -IYi/Lexer -XTypeSynonymInstances -XRankNTypes
-XFlexibleContexts -XGeneralizedNewtypeDeriving -XDeriveDataTypeable
-o M -threaded

$ ghc --version
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version

$ cabal --version
cabal-install version 0.5.10
using version of the Cabal library

(fetched from repo this morning)
