The Mac OS X installer for wxHaskell 0.4 fails. The
problem appears to be the following text that appears
twice in both wxhaskell-0.4.post_install and
wxhaskell-0.4.post_upgrade:

env wxhlibdir="/usr/local/wxhaskell/lib/lib" . . .

Looks to me like the second ``lib'' should actually
be ``wxhaskell-0.4''. If I run the commands by
hand after making this modification, the installation
appears to succeed.

(However, the resulting installed wxHaskell
still doesn't work. This is the subject of my next
bug report.)

    Jeff, any chance you'd be willing to poke around our configure script and the config/ directory from the darcs version of wxhaskell (darcs get http://darcs.haskell.org/wxhaskell ) and see if it's still broken, or perhaps try to fix it? You can send patches via darcs send. Feel free to say no, of course, just trying to lure more users into devel mode.

    Wow, great to see some activity in wxHaskell. It has been a long
    time since I looked at it, but I still follow Haskell avidly and
    use it for personal projects and as a font of inspiration. (In
    the meantime I've been writing OCaml for a living.)

    I'd be honored to help, but my time is fairly limited. I'll let
    you know if I find anything interesting.

    Best regards,

    Hi again,

    We've recently made a release candidate available for download, and I noticed that the installer for MacOS X seemed to be behaving correctly. So, I'll be closing this bug and thanking you both for the report and your offer to have a look.

    Best,

    Eric
