Ticket #138 (closed defect: fixed)
Haskell platform for Mac OS X depends on non-standard perl install
|Reported by:||dmp||Owned by:||gregorycollins|
The ghc-asm script has a #!/opt/local/bin/perl which is the perl installed by macports and not the one included by default with the os. If perl is not installed by macports, this will cause an error message like:
ghc: could not execute: /Library/Frameworks/GHC.framework/Versions/612/usr/lib/ghc-6.12.3/ghc-asm
when trying to use the C backend. I think the platform should not depend on a macports version of perl.
It looks like the ghc-split script also referencs the non-standard perl install location.
