I've seen this occasionally. If you check gtk2hs-confg.h near the bottom
of the file you'll likely find something like


rather than


It is ./configure that generates the gtk2hs-confg.h from
gtk2hs-confg.h.in based on tests in configure.ac. I've never been able
to reproduce it and when others have helped me investigate we did not
find a solution or indeed a cause.

If you'd like to do some digging it'd be much appreciated. I'm cc'ing
the gtk2hs-users list just in case someone else has already diagnosed
