Re: Help needed with lens testsuite


first of all, thank for taking on the various build failures on exotic
architectures! Greatly appreciated!

I’ve seen this a few times now. doctest is a nasty beast, as it uses the
GHC API, i.e. uses the compiler as a library. And this means that
dynamic linking is used, which works fine on amd64, but probably not

I’m surprised that it even fails on i386, though.

I don’t think it is i386-specific, but I don’t really have more to say.
I guess we need to escalate that to those that know more about the RTS
and the linking.

There is https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/3720, but I’m not sure
how related that is, and in either case its not helpful.
