Description

Richard reported on ghc-devs:

checking for readelf... no
configure: error: cannot find readelf in your PATH

OS X uses Mach-O not ELF. So readelf does not work on Mach-O binaries.

Resolution: fixed

Indeed the configure check should be skipped on Darwin. This is fixed in 7f8fc1c9db5bef2dea05e001488d5bc7c8b38575. I'll push an rc2 with this and one other fix today.

The new Hadrian build system has been merged. Relabeling the tickets concerning the legacy make build system to prevent confusion.
