Sorry to Duncan, I hit reply which just sent my reply to your own  
email address not to the mailing list. Second time I've made that  
mistake. Hopefully this one will reach the list instead.

I can't even check out the darcs version from the repository because  
that gives me an error (on applying patch 107/256 from memory). So I  
am using the tarball for c2hs-0.14.5. Here is the problem:

./Setup.hs configure

     Couldn't match expected type  
            against inferred type `LocalBuildInfo'
     Probable cause: `addWrapperAndLib' is applied to too many arguments
     In the `postInst' field of a record
     In the first argument of `defaultMainWithHooks', namely
         `defaultUserHooks {postInst = addWrapperAndLib}'

I have ghc 6.6 installed. I also have ghc 6.7.x installed in a  
different location. I would like to be able to use c2hs with ghc  
6.7.x if possible.
