Eh, why not, I guess...  I use this patch (from the Web, I
don't quite remember exactly where):

After make install finishes unsuccessfully, I invoke this:

Of course you should change the --package-conf file and the
{import,library}-dirs to match your ./configure options.  I
wasn't root on this machine so had to install in my home
directory, and didn't want to pollute my user package.conf
with wild guesses.  Anyway, your chosen package.conf must
contain at least [] before running this script.

Good luck!

On this, see GHC bug 1188785 (not of much interest).
