No problem. I'm now able to successfully make GHC. Thanks about that!

However 'make install' fails:

$ make install
ifBuildable/ifBuildable base setup/Setup install
copy directory 'dist/doc/html/base' to '/home/bas/share/ghc/doc/html/base'.
copy dist/build/HSbase-2.1.o to

Registering base-2.1...
Reading package info from ".installed-pkg-config" ... done.
ghc-pkg: /home/bas/lib/base-2.1/ghc-6.7.20070502/include doesn't exist
or isn't a directory (use --force to override)
make[1]: *** [install.library.base] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 1

The directory: /home/bas/lib/base-2.1/ghc-6.7.20070502/include indeed
does not exists.

What can be the problem?
