Makefile, Linux versions

Wed, 20 Mar 2002 14:47:45 +0300

Dear GHC,

I have installed  ghc-5.02.2-i386-unknown-linux

in my user directory on  RedHat-6.1 Linux machine, libc-2.1.2
to which I have  ssh  access.

My DoCon program was tested on Debian Linux. 
Now, it fails to `make' under RedHat in the following way.

1. It loads some shell wich shows the   $  prompt.
   $ echo $shell

DoCon `make' was tested under  tcsh.
Also this RedHat machine is a claster: 
for any job started, the system chooses itself appropriate machine
to run this job on.
But I was told that  tcsh  switches off this clastering.

So, for these two reasons, I command  
before `making' DoCon.

2. And it fails as follows:

 > make docon
  ghc -fglasgow-exts  -fallow-overlapping-instances
      -fallow-undecidable-instances -fno-warn-overlapping-patterns 
     -fwarn-unused-binds -fwarn-unused-matches -fwarn-unused-imports
     -syslib data   -ddump-hi-diffs  -package-name docon 
     --make DExport
  ghc: input file doesn't exist: docon
  ghc: input file doesn't exist: DExport
  ghc: no such system library (-syslib): data
  ghc: unrecognised option: -package-name
  ghc: unrecognised option: --make

Under  lstcsh,  it reports the same thing.
If I copy this command by mouse and run it not via Makefile but
from the command line, then it works.
The strings like 
                 -ddump-hi-diffs  -package-name docon 

are kept in the varibles defined and used in Makefile like this:

  o1 =  -ddump-hi-diffs  -package-name docon 
        ghc $(o1)  ...

I wonder about this effect. How can one fix this Makefile business?

Thank you in advance for the help.
