            Hi all,<br>
            <br>
            I'm new to GHC Dev and I'm trying to build GHC 7.7 (the repo
            is about 9 days old) on a Windows machine with mingw32. I
            followed the very helpful article for newcomers to GHC dev (
            <a moz-do-not-send="true"
              href="http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Newcomers#"
              target="_blank">http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Newcomers#</a>
            ) and up to configure it was easy.<br>
            <br>
            Now I get a problem with configure, the last few output
            lines are:<br>
            <br>
            GHC build  : i386-unknown-mingw32<br>
            GHC host   : i386-unknown-mingw32<br>
            GHC target : i386-unknown-mingw32<br>
            configure: Building in-tree ghc-pwd<br>
            checking for path to top of build tree... j:/ghc<br>
            checking for gcc... j:/ghc/inplace/mingw/bin/gcc.exe<br>
            checking whether the C compiler works... no<br>
            configure: error: in `/j/ghc':<br>
            configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables<br>
            See `config.log' for more details<br>
            <br>
            From config.log it's clear that
            j:/ghc/inplace/mingw/bin/gcc.exe is missing (actually
            already the bin is missing). My gcc is in /mingw/bin, which
            is in PATH, but even if I try with the option<br>
            <br>
            --with-gcc=/mingw/bin/gcc<br>
            <br>
            I get the same error.<br>
            <br>
            So I was looking in the configure script and found out that,
            for mingw32 and i386, gcc must be under
            $hardtop/inplace/mingw/bin/, and if not, there are commands
            to unpack all tools from tar files like
            ghc-tarballs/mingw/binutils*.tar.lzma and a few others.<br>
            <br>
            The point is, I don't have the subdirectory ghc-tarballs
            under my ghc directory.<br>
            <br>
            Now, my questions:<br>
            <br>
            1. Are there any reasons to not use the building tools
            coming from the mingw installation, and use the dedicated
            ones?<br>
            <br>
            2. Where could I find those tarballs? Did I miss something
            when updated the repositories?<br>
            <br>
            Thanks,<br>
            Nicu<br>
