Yeah, I had a lot of these. The problem was that GHC has a lot of different "CFLAGS",
so finding the right way to pass "-float-abi=hard" to every one of them took some time, but
eventually I ended up with the following change to mk/build.mk:
ifeq "$(BuildFlavour)" "quick"
SRC_HC_OPTS = -H64m -O0 -fasm
GhcStage1HcOpts = -O -fasm
GhcStage2HcOpts = -O0 -fasm
GhcLibHcOpts = -O -fasm -optlc-float-abi=hard
SplitObjs = NO
HADDOCK_DOCS = NO
BUILD_DOCBOOK_HTML = NO
BUILD_DOCBOOK_PS = NO
BUILD_DOCBOOK_PDF = NO
(Change the build flavor you are using, of course)
And I ran configure as:
LDFLAGS="-marm -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=vfp" CFLAGS="-marm -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=vfp" ./configure --with-opt=/usr/bin/opt-3.1 --with-llc=/usr/bin/llc-3.1 --with-ld=`which ld.gold`
(I switched to the gold linker, because ld was running out of RAM often.)
I did eventually finish building stage2, but the final executable segfaulted on start.
I haven't investigated much why that happened, the days it takes to rebuild it just
made me give up.
Hope this helps,
