I have just installed the new Haskell Platform under Mac OS X 10.5.  
With the previous installation of GHC 6.10.4 I managed to install  
gtk2hs manually so I think I have all required Unix libs.

Now, I tried to install gtk2hs from Hackage but didn't succeed.

     cabal install gtk2hs-buildtools

works fine but

     cabal install gtk

fails with the message

     Configuring gtk-0.11.0...
     setup: ./Graphics/UI/Gtk/General/IconTheme.chs: invalid argument
     cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
     gtk-0.11.0 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
     ExitFailure 1

The dependencies seem to be installed properly:

     # ghc-pkg --user list | grep 0.11.0

Has anyone experienced this before? Googling the error message brings  
up a related problem under Solaris but no solution.


Underestimating the novelty of the future is a time-honored tradition.
