[Haskell-cafe] Issue building ghc on NetBSD/amd64

I'm attempting to build ghc on NetBSD/amd64 by following the instructions
at http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/Porting, but I haven't
been able to get past the configure step on the target (see errors below).
Where am I going wrong here? Alternatively, any ideas on where I can find
pre-built binaries for this system? NetBSD/i386 would be easy, but I've had
no luck finding a 64-bit version.

Here's the configure error:
