I have no idea.  Ian may be able to help.  Ian, or anyone else... any ideas?

I would start with ghc-pkg list and ghc-pkg check

Hi Simon.

I've run into some troubles trying to build the nofib with the current master branch.
Apparently, something has changed in the default library path, so the stage2 compiler cannot find base modules:


/Users/ilya/repos/master-ghc/inplace/bin/ghc-stage2 -H64m -O -fasm -O -Rghc-timing -package array -H32m -hisuf hi -rtsopts -c Main.hs -o Main.o

    Failed to load interface for ‛Prelude’
    There are files missing in the ‛base’ package,
    try running 'ghc-pkg check'.
    Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.


The library has been compiled with profiling options (added to the end of<>):

GhcLibHcOpts += -ticky
GhcRTSWays += t
GhcThreaded = NO


BuildFlavour = devel2

But I don't think it is an issue.
What am I doing wrong?
