Looks like you have cabal configured to build profiling versions of things,
but you built ghc without profiling libraries (LibWays didn't include "p").
You may be able to just edit ~/.cabal/config and change any profiling
options in there to False (uncommenting if necessary).

This also applies to your other question about bootstrapping cabal-install,
except that someone told you how to disable its attempt to build profiling
versions (since obviously a cabal config can't be used when you're just
installing it).
