[Haskell-cafe] Can I build and install GHC 6.10.1 without previous installed ghc

Hi Don,

	I tried to install the ghc 6.8.0 last year but failed for some
                Now I decide to do it again, because I'd like to try
                examples in <<Real World Haskell>>

                Now I remember why I try to install it from source code,

                because the binary version has the following problem.

checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
Which we'll further canonicalise into: x86_64-unknown-linux
checking for path to top of build tree... pwd: timer_create: Invalid
configure: error: cannot determine current directory

	I know my linux distribution is a private modified version,
which is based on RedHat 9.0
                I guess it is pretty old version. 
                I also installed many other software from source code. 

                I guess ``timer_create '' is failed because of library

Best Regards

Please use a basic linux binary.


Such as "Linux (x86)"
