Thank you, this was the problem!

Now, though, I've got another problem, and it would be great if someone 
could help me here.

I'm on Mac OS 10.3.9. I can't get GHC's configure script to detect my 
OpenAL installation. I used OpenAL's binary OS X installer to install 
OpenAL as a framework. The GHC configure script doesn't see it. I tried 
just downloading the code for OpenAL and compiling it so that I could 
install it in the normal Unixy way, but it refuses to compile (the 
configure script seems to utterly ignore the options I give it and 
tries to compile for backends I don't have).
