compiling ghc 5.0 with cygwin
Tue, 17 Apr 2001 13:48:54 -0700

I am using Cygwin on an NT4SP5.  I have a recent (i.e.,
up to date) installation of Cygwin (1.1.8-2).

I installed ghc 4.08.2, and it seems to work.  At least
the simple "hello" works, and happy-1.9 seemed to compile
and install with no problems.

When I tried to compile ghc-5.00, my "make" run ends with
the following error

....tail of make output:
==fptools== make boot - --unix - --no-print-directory -r;

Has anyone seen this before -- is it a cygwin bug or a ghc bug?  Well,
you know all the questions.

I hope someone knows the answers!
