I managed to install ghc 6.10.4 from the tar ball on haskell.org on
OpenSolaris 2009.06, the X11 package then also installed quite easily
too via cabal-install.
But when I tried a cabal install xmonad this error occured:
guenni at opensolaris:~$ cabal install xmonad
Preprocessing library xmonad-0.9...

cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
xmonad-0.9 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1
I may be wrong, but doesn't this indicate an error in xmonad's code
itself, how can that be?
