Thanks Ben, none of this is obvious to me  :) I just read the doc which
doesn't mention distclean or rebuild
​ which I have never had to do on earlier source distributions​
. I did a make distclean, then a configure, then a make -j5 and got the
same error. by rebuild do you mean do it again starting from scratch?

I did google the error, i.e. 'Haskell "_stg_sel_17_upd_info" ' and found
that a few people have encountered this this month. Most importantly it led

Ran into this trying to build HEAD today on Mac OS X 10.11.3. But a

​​Should I reopen 11155 or open a new ticket?
