Yes! That is exactly my case. I have GHC6.2 as default. After I change 
it to my local copy of GHC6.4, this problem disappears.
However, when I execute the last command of cross-compilation, I get 
another problem.

$make hc-file-bundle Project=Ghc
I have following error msg. 
echo ghc-6.4/libraries/base/GHC/PrimopWrappers.hs >> hc-files-to-go
echo ghc-6.4/ghc/compiler/parser/Parser.hs >> hc-files-to-go

Since it is mentioned in the documentation, that we can ignore "rts 
and the gz file is successfully generated. I decide to try the next step. It 
it safe to do so?
