Aha, I understand, but could you be so kind and first verify that the
settings file you do have inside your build tree is the same exactly
like the settings file distributed with your bin dist? If not, then make
binary-dist is somehow buggy. If yes, then the configure is buggy and
its surprising you've been able to build ghc at all...
Sorry, I cannot test it here as my 7.6.1 build on ARM is already gone
due to hard-drive space constraints here as it freed space for GHC
i386/x64 solaris cross-compilation tests...
