Building ndp Problem

I wanted to try out data parallel haskell. I followed the instructions
on but I
get the following error:

> dom at lagrange:~/ghc/libraries> make make.library.ndp
> make: *** No rule to make target `build.library.ndp', needed by `make.library.ndp'.  Stop.

BTW when I built ghc, I had the following problem with happy (and alex).
It kept telling me I needed dvips but dvips is already installed. In the
end I used --nodeps.

> dom at lagrange:~/happy> rpmbuild -ta happy-1.17.tar.gz
> error: Failed build dependencies:
>         dvips is needed by happy-1.17-1.i586

> dom at lagrange:~/happy> rpmlocate dvips

> /usr/bin/dvips

> texlive-2007-69

> dom at lagrange:~/happy> dvips --version
