$ ghc-pkg list
     Cabal-1.1.6, GLUT-2.0, HGL-3.1, HUnit-1.1, OpenGL-2.1,
     QuickCheck-1.0, X11-1.1, base-2.0, cgi-2006.9.6, fgl-5.2,

Since it failed at the gcc stage rather than the ghc stage, I don't  
think that it's that the package wasn't installed. I think something  
about the way the distribution was put together is wrong.

This is the binary Intel build that is listed on the GHC 6.6  
downloads page. It looks like something is wrong with that build. I  
guess I'll try building it from source instead.
