Austin, (or anyone else)
#8320 is urgent, but I can't debug it if I can't reproduce it.  You can reproduce it. Can you help me do so?

Subject: can't make build fail

I have just done a vanilla "sh validate" on snake.foxdie.org, and it worked fine.  Haddock docs were built.
So I can't reproduce the failure #8320 on the very same machine that you get the failure.  That's weird.  You could sudo to me and try in ~/code/HEAD.
I didn't make a mk/validate.mk file, so I'm just using the underlying mk/validate-settings.mk
Can't debug till I can reproduce!
