Ticket #7119 (closed bug: fixed)
Build failure on OS X Mountain Lion
On my OS X Mountain Lion machine, while building HEAD with GHC 7.4.2 as the bootstrapping compiler, the build eventually fails like so:
$ make ===--- building phase 0 /usr/bin/make -r --no-print-directory -f ghc.mk phase=0 phase_0_builds make: Nothing to be done for `phase_0_builds'. ===--- building phase 1 /usr/bin/make -r --no-print-directory -f ghc.mk phase=1 phase_1_builds make: Nothing to be done for `phase_1_builds'. ===--- building final phase /usr/bin/make -r --no-print-directory -f ghc.mk phase=final all HC [stage 2] libraries/vector/dist-install/build/Data/Vector/Fusion/Stream/Monadic.o Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.

This is from a checkout from Friday, August 3rd 2012. It looks like a bug in the DIY linker. Initially I thought it might be fixed by Luite's patch in #7040, but it is not. The build is also completely littered with warnings during compilation from the assembler:
/var/folders/6x/2_5h95jx2kqgpbnk0cpg1vd00000gn/T/ghc67149_0/ghc67149_0.s:970:0: section difference relocatable subtraction expression, "_dphzmprimzmseqzm0zi6zi0zi1_DataziArrayziParallelziUnliftedziArrayArray_MutableArrayArray_info" minus "_dphzmprimzmseqzm0zi6zi0zi1_DataziArrayziParallelziUnliftedziArrayArray_MutableArrayArray_info_dsp" using a symbol at the end of section will not produce an assembly time constant
I imagine this is due to some unforseen toolchain updates in XCode 4.5. I'll look into supressing these warnings with a patch.
