ANNOUNCE: GHC 7.8.1 Release Candidate 1

I've been attempting to build under Mac OS X Mavericks and have run into some problems. My iconv and gmp are installed in non-standard locations using Fink. When configuring I get:

barneys-imac:ghc-7.8.20140130 bjs$ ./configure --prefix=/Users/bjs/Desktop/ghc --with-iconv-includes=/sw/include --with-gmp-includes=/sw/include --with-iconv-libraries=/sw/lib --with-gmp-libraries=/sw/lib
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-iconv-includes, --with-iconv-libraries

and then the installed executable can't itself build ghc from source because of the missing iconv libraries. I noticed that ./configure --help doesn't mention --with-iconv-* in the Mavericks install files but it does in the source build.

Any ideas?
