 Linking Setup ...
 /usr/libexec/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin8/4.0.1/ld: can't locate file for:
 collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

 Error during cabal-install bootstrap:
 Compiling the Setup script failed

 I'm _sure_ that this has something to do with my binary ghc installation,
 since I found I could not compile with ghc either for the same reason.  I
 set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to /sw/lib to point to the location of gmp
 (fink).  This fixed my ghc compilation problem, but the bootstrap script
 still fails.
