Ticket #3639 (closed bug: duplicate)
GHC 6.10.1 fails to build with "../includes/ghcautoconf.h: No such file or directory"
I am attempting to build GHC 6.10.1 on a CentOS 4.5 machine.
At the 'make install' stage, I get this error:
/home/build/build/ghc-6.10.1/libraries/cabal-bin /home/build/local/bin/ghc /home/build/build/ghc-6.10.1/libraries/bootstrapping.conf build --distpref dist-stage1 --ghc-option=-H32m --ghc-option=-O --ghc-option=-H32m --ghc-option=-O Preprocessing executables for ghc-bin-6.10.1...

This was also reported here http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/glasgow-haskell-bugs/2008-November/015981.html but with no follow up.
I already have GHC 6.8.3 built, so I will uninstall 6.10.4 to try to build 6.10.1 with 6.8.3 instead, and report back here if I have success.
Otherwise, as GHC 6.10.1 is apparently the only version of GHC that I can use (library dependencies rule out 6.8.*), I would really appreciate help on fixing this or a workaround!
