ghc-6.8.3 binary dist problem

When I try to ./configure, I get this error:

aragon: .../i386-unknown-linux/ghc-6.8.3
> ./configure --prefix=/projects/ctl/franksen/usr    
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
Which we'll further canonicalise into: i386-unknown-linux
checking for path to top of build tree... configure: error: cannot determine
current directory

Looking into configure, I see that it calls 'utils/pwd/pwd forwardslash'
which seems to be the culprit, since

aragon: .../i386-unknown-linux/ghc-6.8.3 > utils/pwd/pwd forwardslash
[1]    28489 floating point exception  utils/pwd/pwd forwardslash
