#haskell ( transcript might help a bit:

<kowey> anybody know the answer to ? seems like a bit of make silliness
<Botje> the "" in front of the configure looks fishy
<Botje> % "" ls
 zsh: permission denied: 
 it even fails in bash!
<Botje> so i'd look at why that "" is there
<Botje> kowey: ^ ^ 
<kowey> sounds like a good start, thanks, Botje
