Description chobaga 2018-03-27 19:16:15 UTC
Build fails with the usual
> /var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/ghc-8.0.2/work/usr/lib/ghc-8.0.2/bin/ghc-pkg: No such file or directory
because the binaries used for bootstrapping are not fully statically linked and require glibc. Later unstable versions have the same problem.

My understanding is it is not enough to have static ghc to be able to build ghc on foreign libc.

ghc comes with it's standard library (base, unix, rts) that use libc definitions gathered at ghc compile time. I expect them to be unlinkable on foreign libc.
