BeOS port

is it possible to use a simpler build system for GHC? :)

Could someone please have a look at the build logs?
Note that I got the same errors when building on Linux!

I also ported some .c files. You can find the source here:

When I manually went into the ghc folder and ran make the .c files were 
compiled successfully.
Then, I had problems with the mangler, but that was a bug in Perl, I 
think. I commented out:
die "Prologue junk?: $p\n" if $p =~ /^\s+[^\s\.]/;
and it worked fine. That is must be a bug in Perl because running this 
check in some other script does not fail.

The next error was that my shell did not understand the script for 
"Ways". I just commented it out and it began looping and always saying 
that it tries to compile ways, then it restarts the whole makefile and 
begins with gmp and so on...never ending.

Could somebody please install a freeware version of BeOS on his 
computer and try to fix what is broken? I think fixing the build 
scripts is beyond my capabilities.

Thank you very much.
