Hi all,

Apologies if this was posted recently. I haven't been keeping up with 
the list as much as I should as of late.

I just tried to compile darcs 1.0.2 with GHC 6.4 on Mac OS X 10.3:

scramasax% ghc --version
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.4

scramasax% curl --version
curl 7.10.2 (powerpc-apple-darwin7.0) libcurl/7.10.2 OpenSSL/0.9.7b 

scramasax% pwd

and during a "./configure --prefix=/usr/local", I got:

checking where GHC keeps its libraries... /usr/local/lib/ghc-6.4
checking GHC.Handle.openFd... NOT old API
checking GHC.Handle.openFd new API... failed
configure: error: Couldnt figure out how to call GHC.Handle.openFd!

Is this a known issue?

Thanks in advance. Sorry if this duplicates an existing bug.
