Description

GHC does not accept --srcdir during building. (Yes - I know of error but it should be fixed).

PS. Priority is probably lower then normal PPS. For question why - I try to integrate it with takeoffgw so I try to write cygbuild which uses separate build directory.

Thanks for the report.

I assume it is configure, rather than GHC, which uzytkownik expects to accept the flag. Our configure script's --help output claims:

      --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']

but I assume the build system currently ignores it.

Ups. Sorry my error.

IIRC it says it is not supported and fail the configuration.

I don't think this will ever be a high priority for us, so I'm going to close the ticket. If it's important for someone else then we would accept a patch to implement it, though.

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