What does "/sec/bin/ghc --version" say? I suspect it'll be rather than 6.4.2.

The simplest thing to do is just to remove all the content of
compat/cbits/unicode.c (assuming you do have something > 6.4; if you
have 6.4 itself (or something older) then you'll need to leave the
#include line in the file, but remove the #if and #endif).
