Failure building HEAD

Today I was building HEAD using macports and had the error:
configure: Using compiler: ../../compiler/ghc-inplace
configure: Compiler flavor: GHC
configure: Compiler version: 6.7.20070607
configure: Using package tool: ../../utils/ghc-pkg/ghc-pkg-inplace
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error:
C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
(this was in libraries/base). The config.log showed the problem:
configure:1680: checking for C compiler default output file name
configure:1683: gcc -I/opt/local/include --configure-option=-O2 -I/
opt/local/include --configure-option=-I/opt/local/include -L/opt/
local/lib --configure-option=-L/opt/local/lib conftest.c >&5
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-fconfigure-option=-O2"
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-fconfigure-option=-I/
opt/local/include"cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-
fconfigure-option=-L/opt/local/lib"configure:1686: $? = 1
It looks like cabal is messed up, passing "--configure-option=" when
it should be
stripping it out.
Is this a problem with the HEAD branch or do I need a development
of cabal from the darcs repository to build the latest ghc?
