[Haskell-cafe] Compiling haskell-platform-2013.2.0.0 fails

I'm attempting to compile haskell-platform on an Arch Linux system. It 
fails very soon after invoking 'make':

Configuring HUnit-
Setup: Use of GHC's environment variable GHC_PACKAGE_PATH is 
incompatible with
Cabal. Use the flag --package-db to specify a package database (it can 
be used
multiple times).

If it makes a difference, I'm using GHC 7.6.3 from the Arch package 
repo.  The envar GHC_PACKAGE_PATH mentioned in the error message is unset.

Thanks for any help,
