Thanks very much for your reply.

I looked and the libraries/base/libHSbase.a file is there, is the
correct size, and does contain the missing references.  The only
problem is that the compiler doesn't seem to be seeing it. =20

I tried looking in the makefile to see if I could insert a path
directive somewhere, but I'm not very experienced with UNIX makefiles
so I couldn't find where I ought to put such a thing.

What is odd is that ghc-inplace is invoked by the make process several
times before this big one (which appears to be the start of stage 2?)
and works fine...
