Here is the result of attempting to build ghc-6.2.1 with the 6.2.1rc binaries:


==fptools== make boot - --unix -wr;
 in /ghc/fptools/libraries/base
../../ghc/utils/hsc2hs/hsc2hs-inplace -Iinclude -I../../ghc/includes -Icbits/regex -I.    System/CPUTime.hsc
Executing: c:/MinGW/bin/gcc -c -mno-cygwin -D__GLASGOW_HASKELL__=602 -Ic:/ghc/fptools/ghc/includes -Iinclude -I../../ghc/includes -Icbits/regex -I. System\CPUTime_hsc_make.c -o System\CPUTime_hsc_make.o
Executing: c:/MinGW/bin/gcc System\CPUTime_hsc_make.o -o System\CPUTime_hsc_make.exe

Fail: System\CPUTime_hsc_make.o: removeFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

make[2]: *** [System/CPUTime.hs] Error 1
make[1]: *** [boot] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/ghc/fptools/libraries'
make: *** [build] Error 1

Again, the same problem: System\CPUTime_hsc_make.c -o System\CPUTime_hsc_make.o

It should be: System/CPUTime_hsc_make.c -o System/CPUTime_hsc_make.o

I'm angry at myself not knowing Haskell and being able to fix this stuff :-(
