I recently upgraded my development platform to GHC 7.0.3 and the latest
platform. After manually patching the cabal package for DrIFT (it had a
dependency base<4 which was not satisfiable on my system, so I changed
it to base-all) I tried to build jhc. Both version 0.7.7 fail to
build, but there are different reasons:
- -XTypeFamilies is required to build JHC with GHC 7.0.3, so I added
this flag to Makefile.am
- jhc 0.7.7 fails to build at the module "Options" with the following
[ 73 of 169] Compiling Options ( drift_processed/Options.hs,
Couldn't match expected type `[Char]' with actual type `Char'
Expected type: [String]
Actual type: [Char]
In the second argument of `(==>)', namely `version'
In the expression: "version" ==> version
- jhc TRUNK fails at E.SSimplify with a rather long error, so I put it
onto a paste service: http://goo.gl/tpKvZ
I hope these errors are helpful.
Yours, Robert Clausecker
