Ticket #2832 (closed merge: fixed)
GHC -split-objs, Doesn't Print Error If GHC Built With SplitObjs = NO.
|Reported by:||dejones||Owned by:||igloo|
|Type of failure:||Difficulty:||Unknown|
|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
If GHC is called with flag -split-objs but GHC was built with SplitObjs? = NO, then GHC simply ignores the -split-objs flag; however, GHC should print an error message and exit, stating that GHC was built without support for split objects.
Please refer to the thread on the gtk2hs-users mailing list ([Gtk2hs-users] Gtk2Hs Linker Errors, Simple Window from Tutorial) for a test case and the resulting linker problems that occurred when building gtk2hs.
