Hi Lemmih,

Yes, but harp is part of the haskell-src-exts distribution.  However,  
the failure is
not related to what I am trying to build.  It doesn't matter if I run
the same command,

     runhaskell Setup.hs configure

in the haskell-src-exts subdirectory.  The failure is the same.

The failure also occurs if I try to configure an simple homemade  
using the cabal method on OS X.  The same test application configures  
builds correctly using cabal on FreeBSD 5.4 under ghc-6.4.

Best WIshes,
