When I downloaded and unpacked the latest GHC snapshot of the STABLE
branch for Windows (ghc-126.96.36.19960421-i386-unknown-mingw32.tar.gz),
I got the following error trying to start GHCi:
___ ___ _
/ _ \ /\ /\/ __(_)
/ /_\// /_/ / / | | GHC Interactive, version 6.4.2, for Haskell 98.
/ /_\\/ __ / /___| | http://www.haskell.org/ghc/
\____/\/ /_/\____/|_| Type :? for help.
Loading package base-1.0 ... linking ... :
c:/ghc/GHC-64~1.2/HSbase1.o: unknown symbol `_sqrtf'
: unable to load package `base-1.0'
The complaint about _sqrtf also shows up when I try to
compile/link anything with ghc; so the problem is bigger
than just not being able to use GHCi.
The GHC is installed in c:\ghc\ghc-6.4.2, the PATH begins with
LIBRARY_PATH is set to c:\ghc\ghc-6.4.2\gcc-lib
I know for sure that the 6.4.2 snapshot of a couple of weeks ago
worked fine, so I wonder what might be wrong with the latest one.
I would appreciate any hints.
