Does your system have a GCC version, which is patched to add
stack protection code into the binaries automatically? Like
-fstack-protector? Because this looks like GCC is doing
something unexpected with the stack pointer, thus confusing
ghc. If that is the case, disable this functionality and try

Alternatively, try building without optimization (remove the
"-O2" and "-O" from CFLAGS and GHCFLAGS in autoconf.mk);
that might help.

In any case, this seems to be a problem with the _compiler_
installation, not with darcs per se.
