Hi ghc devs,

I'm trying to build recent master (579bb766) on macOS Sierra but make install fails as follows:

"/usr/local/ghc/ghc-HEAD/lib/ghc-8.3.20170426/bin/ghc-pkg" --force --global-package-db "/usr/local/ghc/ghc-HEAD/lib/ghc-8.3.20170426/package.conf.d" update rts/dist/package.conf.install
Reading package info from "rts/dist/package.conf.install" ... done.

make[1]: *** [install_packages] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2

The package.conf.install in question is available here:
And my is here:

I can't reproduce this error on Linux. Does anyone know how to fix it?
