I'm trying to build GHC 6.8.2 (6.8.3 once I get all this nailed  
down...) from an old bootstrap ghc on SuSE 9.3-64 (yes, I know)  
because the 6.6.1 and newer binary tarballs for amd64 Linux doesn't  
work with the "timer_create" issue.

The problem is, having built a shiny new 6.8.2 both stage1 and stage2,  
the result works but compiled programs have the "timer_create"  
problem.  (??)

At this point I'm stymied.  Suggestions, other than "upgrade" (not  
currently possible due to commercial software support and timing
