[Haskell-cafe] Building Haddock on Windows

Trying to invoke Haddock with

Initially I get a stack overflow, so I added: +RTS -K2M -RTS ...

and now I get:
Fail: end of file
Action: Data.Binary.getWord8

Is the --read-interface option specified correctly? This is where my GHC
installation is, and the base.haddock file exists in there. I assume this is
the interface file.

Is this a compatibility problem? i.e. haddock file distributed with GHC 6.0
too old for Haddock 0.6?
