Ah, good, that'll hopefully make getting 6.6 working less painful.

Hmm. Do you know if it was eating all your memory?

Yes, that's probably the best way to go. Put:
in mk/build.mk before you start building. If that breaks in the same way
then set the -debug flag as I described before, delete
compiler/stage1/ghc-6.whatever.it.is, run "make stage=1" in compiler/
(should relink ghc with -debug) and then try the failing command again.
Assuming it still breaks, try gdb'ing it (note that it's a shell script
that's being run, so you'll need to run the real binary and pass the
extra args to it manually with gdb).
