Hmm, I'm not sure if I'm the patch provider, but at least I provided
patch which was merged into HEAD (don't have 7.8 branch here so check
yourself) which fixes linking of binaries failure on Solaris. Please see
The core of the change is:
- else package_hs_libs ++ extra_libs ++ other_flags
+ else other_flags ++ package_hs_libs ++ extra_libs
the patch contains full explanation in comment so see it for more
If this is not what bugs you, then please ignore me.
