Ticket #4878 (closed bug: fixed)
Bindist build tools assume libffi.so.5 availability

|Type of failure:||Installing GHC failed||Difficulty:|
|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
To be able to install the generic i386 Linux binary distribution, I had to do this little trick before doing the 'configure && make install':
cp libffi/dist-install/build/libHSffi-ghc7.0.1.so libffi/libffi.so.5
This was because my up-to-date Slackware 13.1 ships with libffi.so.4 and some of the installation tools in above mentioned package have been linked against libffi.so.5.
