Ticket #552 (closed enhancement: duplicate)
Cabal fails because header file is missing. But in fact the header file is erroneous.
|Reported by:||mgross||Owned by:|
When trying to install HERA 0.2 the
runhaskell Setup.hs configure
command fails with:
Setup.hs: Missing dependency on a foreign library: * Missing header file: hsmpfr.h This problem can usually be solved by installing the system package that provides this library (you may need the "-dev" version). If the library is already installed but in a non-standard location then you can use the flags --extra-include-dirs= and --extra-lib-dirs= to specify where it is.
But in fact the header file is present. The real problem is an include in the header file.
fails on Mac OS systems.
It would be better if Cabal would report the compile error.
