Building went ok, despite the following warning at the end of ./configure:

WARNING: It looks like "gmake" is GNU make 3.80.
This version cannot be used to build GHC.
Please use GNU make >= 3.81.

But running the testsuite failed with:

Looks like you don't have timeout, building it first...
gmake -C ../../timeout all
gmake[1]: Entering directory
Makefile:16: *** missing `endif'.  Stop.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory
gmake: *** [../../timeout/install-inplace/bin/timeout] Error 2

This error refers to the line

  $(eval $(call canonicalise,PREFIX))

in timeout/Makefile.
