Great -- thanks. I can confirm that with the latest darcs version of
the network library, doing that step allowed the library to build and
install successfully (though still with the GCC spam I mentioned). (The
latest hackage version of network still did not install properly even if
I used autoreconf.)
My next failing package install attempt was uvector, which fails with
messages like those I got with the unix package:
`haFD' is not a (visible) field of constructor `Handle__'
`haBuffer' is not a (visible) field of constructor `Handle__'
`haIsStream' is not a (visible) field of constructor `Handle__'
Not in scope: data constructor `Buffer'
`bufBuf' is not a (visible) field of constructor `Buffer'
`bufWPtr' is not a (visible) field of constructor `Buffer'
The latest darcs version of uvector is no different. Will these
problems need to be fixed in the code on a per-package basis, or is
there a cabal fix that can overcome them?
