Cabal can't compile packages with Haskell Platform 2011.2.0.0 and XCode 4

Reported by: kevin Owned by: dons
Priority: minor Milestone: 2012.2.0.0
Component: GHC Keywords:
Cc: markl@…


XCode 4 has no /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk. GHC that ships w/ Haskell Platform 2011.2.0.0 expects it to be there. So a number of packages don't compile. e.g., network, pointfree, hoogle, because they can't find requisite headers or libraries.

Fix is to install Xcode 3.x.

Workaround is to create a symlink in /Developer/SDKs/ from MacOSX10.6.sdk to MacOSX10.5.sdk
