I have just received a bug report for the Gentoo Linux ebuild of GHC
5.04 whose cause I cannot find. Recall that Gentoo builds all packages
from sources.

The build processes stops when genprimopcode segfaults during the last
stage of the build (GHC 5.04 building itself).

Anyone interested please look at

for the complete Bugzilla entry which has all available details,
including an strace of the segfaulting genprimopcode.
