I'm not sure what the root is but I blew everything away and did the  

mv fptools/ fptools.bak
cvs co -r ghc-6-4-branch fpconfig
cd fptools
cvs co -r ghc-6-4-branch ghc hslibs happy haddock libraries
make clean

Go the same error as reported before. Something is linking against  
both libncurses and libreadline which is what's causing problems.

This is ghc 6.4.2 that I got from DarwinPorts. It's built without - 
threaded and works. I never had problems with it before.
