Output of `emerge --info`

This is probably a continuation of the story of #606666:

On a fresh stage3 install, to my delight, emerging ghc-7.10.3 works, and ghci appears to work.

However, using ghc for compiling executables fails: Save the following in `Hello.hs`:
```` haskell
module Main where

main = putStrLn "Hello World!"
````
Then both

  ghc --make -O Hello
  rm Hello.o Hello.hi; ghc --make Hello

fail with spectacularly long lists of linker errors ending in:

...
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/7.3.0/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: /usr/lib64/ghc-7.10.3/rts/libHSrts.a(PrimOps.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against symbol `g0' can not be used when making a PIE object; recompile with -fPIC

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Trying profiling:

  rm Hello.o Hello.hi; ghc --make -prof  Hello

produces a shorter error report:

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Installing packages with USE=profile similarly fails:

  USE=profile emerge -av1 transformers

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

<no location info>: ghc: phase `Linker' failed (exitcode = 1)
...


All these are fixed by changing the last line of /usr/bin/ghc to:

  exec "$executablename" -B"$topdir"  -optl-no-pie  ${1+"$@"}

Since I saw the ghc-7.10.3 emerge process invoke ghc with

   -optc-march=native -opta-march=native -optl-Wl,-O1 -optl-Wl,--as-needed -optc-no-pie -optl-no-pie

I am however not confident that adding just -optl-no-pie is really sufficient --- probably more need to be added
(including -fPIC / -optc-fPIC and/or -optc-fno-stack-protector ?).

(I need ghc-7.10.3 for a production system based on Hase (haste-lang.org).)
Comment 1 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2018-12-30 23:12:14 UTC
Could it be that you have not rebuilt ghc after switching to gcc-6+?

-no-pie should be enough and is detected at build time:

Comment 2 Wolfram Kahl 2018-12-30 23:19:37 UTC
I did

  emerge =dev-lang/ghc-7.10.3

on a brand-new gentoo install, from:

   stage3-amd64-20181227T214502Z.tar.xz

I would hope that the resulting /usr/bin/ghc can compile a HelloWorld program...
Comment 3 Wolfram Kahl 2018-12-30 23:24:59 UTC
The referenced line enables:

		append-ghc-cflags compile link -no-pie

I'd currently guess that the problem is that this does not pass -no-pie to the linker for pure Haskell compilations that do not involve C compilations.
