I think I am very atypical as I had the Haskell Platform installed and did
an uninstall-hs before installing this release candidate. This is on the
latest Mac OS and Xcode.
At the time I got the error the file was a symbolic link, I believe to an
install: /usr/local/share/man/man1/ghc.1: No such file or directory
make: *** [install_man] Error 71
make: *** [install] Error 2
bash-3.2$ ls -l /usr/local/share/man/man1/ghc.1
lrwxr-xr-x 1 gcolpitts admin 80 Jun 23 19:44
bash-3.2$ rm /usr/local/share/man/man1/ghc.1
Now after a successful install of the binary and a successful compile from
source I have:
ls -l /usr/local/share/man/man1/ghc.1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root admin 58932 Nov 26 09:16
bash-3.2$ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 58214 May 21 2016
After the binary install I did a cabal install of threadscope, hlint and
criterion and some minimal runtime testing. Everything looks fine.
