Description Finn 2012-12-25 15:20:00 UTC
Compilation of lang/ghc fails with:

/usr/local/bin/ld: /usr/ports/lang/ghc/work/ghc-7.4.2/libraries/terminfo/dist-install/build/libHSterminfo- undefined reference to symbol 't$
/usr/local/bin/ld: note: 'tparm' is defined in DSO //usr/local/lib/libtinfow.so.5.9 so try adding it to the linker command line
//usr/local/lib/libtinfow.so.5.9: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[1]: *** [ghc/stage2/build/tmp/ghc-stage2] Error 1

according to pkg_info -W, libtinfow is part of ncurses.

Seems related to this problem:


Delete devel/ncurses for the duration of the lang/ghc installation
How-To-Repeat: Try building lang/ghc while devel/ncurses is installed on the system.
