runghc error with glibc 2.8: unknown symbol `fstat64'

I get this error when running a script with runghc, if ghc was built
againt glibc 2.8:
ghc: /package/host/ unknown symbol `fstat64'
ghc: unable to load package `base'

With glibc 2.6.1, it works.  (At least, ghc 6.8.3 works with glibc
2.6.1.  I didn't try ghc 6.10.1 with glibc 2.6.1, but ghc 6.8.3 gives
the same error with glibc 2.8, so the ghc version doesn't seem to
matter.)  The output from "make" when building ghc didn't have any
linking errors/warnings related to HSbase, as far as I can see.  Has
anyone seen anything like this?  Any ideas?
