You'll have to be very specific about exactly what procedures you're
following. Porting ghc to a new platform is a bit tricky and there are
many ways it can go wrong, especially if one doesn't exactly follow the
recommended procedures.

So you're now doing what exactly? Building ghc on your linux box? Is
that just an ordinary build (which should work fine) or are you using
special config options etc.

you're following these instructions?

What stage are you at?
