HDirect and GHC-6.6

Yes, my point was indeed about the second compilation stage : once you have build the libs (comlib, the ihc tool and hdirect), you have to install them (com and hdirect) as packages in order to rebuild the ihc tool with the support for type libraries.
At this point, the makefile-based build process fails, and I did not succeed in building the ihc tool with the support for typelibs without the packages because of my lack of knowledge with Cabal.
Note that Sigbjorn Finne also kindly answered my post, so I will have look at the cvs version of hdirect.

Sincerely yours,

Hi Samuel.

I know.
If you want to use hdirect with com support you need some kind of 2
stage build.

I've tried to compile it some time ago and I failed (lack of knowledge
and understanding haskell at that time)..
So you did succeed?

similar to ghc its using a 2 stage build.

I will post a link to this message 
on cabal-devel at haskell.org avoiding cross-posting, too

So we have by now 4 packagers having problems with the current cabal
system? wxwidgets, gtk2hs, hdirect and ghc itself?
