I tried to install HSBC and HSQL-sqlite3,
Bot fail,
And the error report is:

>cabal install HDBC

configure: error: in `/tmp/cabal-tmp-21488/old-time-':

See `config.log' for more details

But the path to gcc is correct, and gc works fine.

I had a similar problem once, and the issue was that the autoconf script didn't allow paths with spaces,
Odd since Haskell installs into "Haskell Package" on windows.

That time I had to reconfigure my whole installation (eliminating the space character), and then install it, and then restore the paths to what they were.

Is this an ongoing issue? Should I reconfigure Haskell to install differently?
