[Solaris bindist] Re: ANNOUNCE: GHC 7.8.1 Release Candidate 1

Hi, I was surprised to find a Solaris bindist. However, on our SunOS 
5.10 ./configure failed miserably.

-bash-3.2$ ./configure
checking for path to top of build tree... 
is not an identifier
configure: error: cannot determine current directory

This happens, because our /bin/sh is a "real" sh (and not a bash) that 
only allows to "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH" as a separate command.

The next failure was:
ld.so.1: ghc-pwd: fatal: libgmp.so.10: open failed: No such file or 

So I had to extend LD_LIBRARY_PATH manually (by /opt/csw/lib). After 
this I got:
ld.so.1: ghc-pwd: fatal: relocation error: file 
symbol clearenv: referenced symbol not found

Which of my libraries is wrong (or too old) despite a matching version 
         libdl.so.1 =>    /lib/libdl.so.1
         libgmp.so.10 =>  /opt/csw/lib/libgmp.so.10
         libm.so.2 =>     /lib/libm.so.2
         librt.so.1 =>    /lib/librt.so.1
         libc.so.1 =>     /lib/libc.so.1
         libgcc_s.so.1 =>         /opt/csw/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
         libaio.so.1 =>   /lib/libaio.so.1
         libmd.so.1 =>    /lib/libmd.so.1

I had to give up! (I'll try to build it from sources if I find time.)

Cheers Christian
