Hmm, maybe I was mistaken, and maybe ~/.ghc survived. I nuked
everything again (there was a .ghc: I assumed it had been re-created,
but maybe it was an old one (I didn't check the datestamps), but
no .cabal). Now 'make' and 'make install' *have* worked for HP.
Haven't got around to trying to use it yet, but I thought I'd share
the good news.
Thanks for your moral support, it seems to have done the trick :-)
Conclusion: I *probably* failed to remove ~/.ghc, so some old data
were interfering with the supposedly clean installation.
A manual install of the GHC 7.0.3 generic Linux binary, followed by
installation from source of HP 2011.2.0.1 *has* worked for me on
Ubuntu Natty, once I nuked *all* previous traces of Haksell on the
system. I *did* have to install libgmp in order for the configuration
step of HP to succeed.
Thanks for your help.
