Description

On Arch linux, with ghc 7.6.3 from the Arch repo.:

tar xvzf haskell-platform-2013.2.0.0.tar.gz cd haskell-platform-2013.2.0.0 ./configure pyrope haskell-platform-2013.2.0.0 $ make scripts/build.sh ************************************************** Scanning system for any installed Haskell Platform components...

Found: None.

Setup: Use of GHC's environment variable GHC_PACKAGE_PATH is incompatible with Cabal. Use the flag --package-db to specify a package database (it can be used multiple times).

Error: Configuring the HUnit-1.2.5.2 package failed make: *** [build.stamp] Error 2

The envar GHC_PACKAGE_PATH mentioned in the error message is not set.

I apologise if this is the wrong medium to make this report; I found no contact info on the haskell-platform download site.
