Building on panther
Building on Panther fails. Sometimes I get:

/SourceCache/gnumake/gnumake-108/make/expand.c:523: failed assertion `current_variable_set_list->next != 0'
Abort

Sometimes:

ghc -cpp -I/sw/include -L/sw/lib -I. -package unix -package text -O -funbox-strict-fields -package util -c Lcs.lhs

Lcs.lhs:43:
Failed to load interface for `FastPackedString':
Could not find interface file for `FastPackedString'
(use -v to see a list of the files searched for)
make: *** [Lcs.o] Error 1

I have GHC-6.2. I wish it had a fink package.

Then my only suggestion would be to try the rpm for darcs, which is completely untested, as I don't have an RPM-based system myself, or to go throught the pain of compiling ghc.

Yes, it failed.

Did you try the RPMs provided for RedHat at www.haskell.org/ghc? I imagine one of them might work with Mandrake.

Like your project, like your way of implementing it, but....
The centralized CVS-archive works ok if you are connected to the internet all the time, but often I have 2 computers next to each other, no one of them connected to the internet. So I was willing to try darcs.

Also, using Haskell for implementation gives credibility, I expect the system to work. I do not understand why not more tools are implemented using advanced languages, all this C-coding in is rather improductive and there is a big risks for buggy software.

So, I decided to install and try it. However, getting GHC to run on Mandrake 9.1 wasn't easy, and I aborted.

Isn't there a simple way to create self-contained binaries for GHC? If you cannot get a simple way to distribute it, people will get the impression that you need to use C/Perl/PHP to be able to install it anywhere, and not languages like Haskell.
