Can't run tests with sdist -> bindist -> test
If you want to make source dist, compile it into bindist then run tests with the bindist, it fails.
mk/get-win32-tarballs.sh download all ./boot ./configure "$@" make sdist mkdir -p sdist-build-dir pushd sdist-build-dir shopt -s extglob tar xvfJ ../sdistprep/ghc-*+([[:digit:]])-src.tar.xz sdist-build-dir cd ghc-* ./boot ./configure "$@" make -j$THREADS make binary-dist popd mkdir -p bdist-test-dir pushd bdist-test-dir tar xvfJ ../sdist-build-dir/ghc-*/ghc-*.tar.xz tar xvfJ ../sdistprep/ghc*testsuite.tar.xz cd ghc-* ./configure make test
I do not have the failure error on hand but it had to do with Haddock trying to read its version from .cabal file which was not included in the bindist/sdist. I have communicated this problem to Ben at the time and this ticket is just to track progress.
