Problem building GHC

I am trying to build from the current GHC source tree on a Debian
"sarge" box, and the build dies trying to compile
/home/shinobi/build/fptools/ghc/parser/Parser.hs, with the following

/usr/bin/ghc -H16m -O  -istage1/utils  -istage1/basicTypes 
-istage1/types  -istage1/hsSyn  -istage1/prelude  -istage1/rename

-istage1/specialise  -istage1/simplCore  -istage1/stranal 
-istage1/stgSyn  -istage1/simplStg  -istage1/codeGen  -istage1/main 
-istage1/profiling  -istage1/parser  -istage1/cprAnalysis

It seems that, apart from whatever else might be wrong, there is a
problem with GCC.  I guess I'll have to switch to version 2.95.2 as
suggested by the guide (I am currently using 3.3.5,) but I also see
some messages reporting "Bad eta expand" earlier in the output - could
this also be related to the problem?
