I found a workaround by simply pre-creating the directory and
then the build finishes successfully. Now I tried to re-compile
the source using the first build:

/usr/local/fptools/bin/ghc -H16m -O  -istage1/utils 
-istage1/basicTypes  -istage1/types  -istage1/hsSyn  -istage1/prelude 
-istage1/rename  -istage1/typecheck  -istage1/deSugar  -istage1/coreSyn 
-istage1/specialise  -istage1/simplCore  -istage1/stranal 
-istage1/stgSyn  -istage1/simplStg  -istage1/codeGen  -istage1/main 
-istage1/profiling  -istage1/parser  -istage1/cprAnalysis 
-istage1/compMan  -istage1/ndpFlatten  -istage1/iface  -istage1/cmm 
-istage1/ghci -Istage1 -DOMIT_NATIVE_CODEGEN -DGHCI -package
template-haskell -package readline -DUSE_READLINE -cpp -fglasgow-exts
-fno-generics -Rghc-timing -I. -IcodeGen -InativeGen -Iparser -package
unix -package Cabal -recomp -Rghc-timing  -H16M '-#include "hschooks.h"'
-i../lib/compat  -fno-cse  -c main/CmdLineOpts.lhs -o
stage1/main/CmdLineOpts.o  -ohi stage1/main/CmdLineOpts.hi
make[2]: *** [stage1/main/CmdLineOpts.o] Bus Error (core dumped)
make[1]: *** [all] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/scratch/ghc-6.4/ghc'
make: *** [build] Error 1

This seems to be a more serious problem, or is it just
specific to the ghc build process ?
