please check: are any of these warnings affecting your package?
warnings during make (ghc head, windows)

(copying to libraries, because many of these warnings come from extralibs)
With the ghc release candidate coming up soon, it might be a good time to
look at warnings? In a ghc head build on windows, there are many of them,
even though ghc and the core libs have undergone a lot of cleaning.
Even if I ignore ghc warnings like 'defined, but not used' 'binding shadowed',
'non-exhaustive match' (!), 'defaulting to', 'orphan instance', 'no type signature',
etc., there are plenty of warnings left, some of which slightly worrying,
suggesting include/documentation/cabal/deprecation trouble.
Starting with only those matching '^Warning:', and listing only examples for
each kind of warning, there are things like
Warning: 'include-dirs: ../libraries/base/cbits' is a relative path outside of
Warning: 'include-dirs: ../libraries/base/include' is a relative path outside
Warning: 'include-dirs: stage2plus' directory does not exist.
Warning: This package indirectly depends on multiple versions of the same
Warning: HUnit.cabal: A package using section syntax should require
Warning: defaultUserHooks in Setup script is deprecated.
Warning: The documentation for the following packages are not installed. No
(this is mostly rts, but also a couple of base-3)
Warning: in export list of "GHC.Base": module not found: "GHC.Bool"
Warning: in export list of "Data.Generics.Basics": module not found: "Data.Typeable"
Warning: base:Control.Monad: could not find link destinations for:
Data.Traversable.Id GHC.Arr.Array Data.Traversable.StateL Data.Traversable.StateR
(these are from a local build of ghc+extralibs on windows, yesterday,
but there are also buildbot logs from a successful build:
There are other warnings, too, eg:
libtool: link: warning: undefined symbols not allowed in i386-unknown-mingw32 shared libraries
ar cru .libs/libffi.a src/debug.o src/prep_cif.o src/types.o src/raw_api.o src/java_raw_api.o
src/closures.o src/x86/ffi.o src/x86/win32.o
libtool: install: warning: remember to run `libtool --finish /usr/local/lib'
warning: implicit declaration of function `reallocf'
warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
Should I be worried?-)
