Hi all,

I realise this mailing list is long defunct, but I am nevertheless
interested in compiling hugs on a modern GNU/Linux system, primarily
motivated by thoughts that are along the lines of

However, I hit this compilation error and I was hoping somebody could
help me to get past it:

cd libraries; make all
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/fommil/tmp/hugs98-plus-Sep2006/libraries'
cd ../cpphs; HUGSFLAGS=-P../libraries/bootlib HUGSDIR=../hugsdir ../src/runhugs -98
../packages/Cabal/examples/hapax.hs configure --verbose --hugs --prefix='/usr/local'
--scratchdir='../hugsdir/packages/cpphs' --with-compiler=../src/ffihugs
runhugs: Error occurred
ERROR "../libraries/bootlib/Foreign/Ptr.hs" - Error while importing DLL
../libraries/bootlib/Foreign/Ptr.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Best regards,
