13. By Iain Lane on 2011-09-05

Handle linker scripts for which dlopen returns "file too short" and/or
which contain INPUT statements (for example libncurses.so)

12. By Matthias Klose on 2011-08-15

Pass --hash-style=both --no-copy-dt-needed-entries --as-needed to the linker.

11. By Iain Lane on 2011-08-10

Cherry-pick upstream commit cfbf0eb to support partially stripped object
files in the GHCi linker. Fixes loading the ghc package in GHCi and
associated compilation failures. Patch by Duncan Coutts
<email address hidden>. (LP: #820847)

10. By Iain Lane on 2011-06-02

Remove all changes from the previous revision. No changes remain over Debian
now and the package can be synced the next time around.

* debian/control:
  + Build-Depend on ghc6 instead of ghc as the latter isn't available yet —
  it's what we're building now ;-)
  + Remove ghc6* transitional packages. Could cause issues while ghc has to
  build-depend on ghc6. Once we know ghc has built we can revert all of the
  changes in this upload.

8. By Joachim Breitner on 2011-03-25

Set a dummy HOME variable upon build. Some build daemons do not set HOME,
but ghc-cabal expects it to be available.

7. By Joachim Breitner on 2011-03-23

* Build-Conflict with broken version of dash (See #618023)
* Link ghc-doc to haddock via virtual package "haddock-interface-<n>"
* Remove redundand Build-dependency on autoconf

6. By Joachim Breitner on 2011-03-11

* ghc6-preinst: Remove package.cache file of any ghc6 installation to avoid
  dpkg warning at upgrade time.
* Build-conflict with ccache. pbuilder installs ccache by default, which
  causes ghc to pick up a wrong path for "gcc".
* Pass -lpthread everywhere. This can possibly be dropped later.

[ Iain Lane ]
* debian/rules: Build with -mminimal-toc on ppc64 — thanks to Colin
  Watson for investigation and patch.

[ Joachim Breitner ]
* Disable the use of epoll_create1 and use epoll_create, as the former is
  not available on Linux kernels earlier than 2.6.27.

4. By Joachim Breitner on 2011-03-08

[ Joachim Breitner ]
* Remove procps dependency (watcher.hs has been removed since a while)
* Build-depend and depend on libgmp-dev instead of libgmp3-dev.

[ Erik de Castro Lopo ]
* Add patch to fix powerpc compile error (powerpc-compile-616635)
  (Closes: #616635)

[ Joachim Breitner ]
* fix FTBFUS by removing left-over binaries
