Can you try compiling the following one line program:
main = putStr "Hello world.\n"
ghc -c -O hello.hs
ghc -o hello hello.o
just to see if your compiler is working? As Peter suggested, it looks like
a compiler problem. Note that ghc uses gcc, so your gcc may be a problem,
if it is strange in some way.
