The first error is the real one; the others happen because the gtk2hs  
makefile doesn't properly abort when a sub-build fails.  (This is  
probably a bash-ism:  setting -e aborts the current iteration of a  
loop, not the entire script/fragment containing the loop.  Supposedly  
POSIX mandates this braindamage.  I'm dubious.)

I have no idea what's causing the first one, though; normally it means  
something is missing from a Cabal configuration file, but last I  
checked gtk2hs didn't use Cabal and I don't see an obvious candidate  
in our gtk2hs 0.9.13 source tree.
