Bug#933306: ghc: Cross-build fails because host and build architecture do not match

Source: ghc
Version: 8.6.5+dfsg1-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch
User: helmutg@debian.org
Usertags: rebootstrap


Trying to cross-build ghc currently fails with:

GHC build  : x86_64-unknown-linux
GHC host   : powerpc-unknown-linux
GHC target : powerpc-unknown-linux
LLVM target: powerpc-unknown-linux
checking for path to top of build tree... /<<PKGBUILDDIR>>
checking for powerpc-linux-gnu-windres... no
checking for powerpc-linux-gnu-dllwrap... no
checking for powerpc-linux-gnu-objdump... powerpc-linux-gnu-objdump
configure: error: 
You've selected:

  BUILD:  x86_64-unknown-linux   (the architecture we're building on)
  HOST:   powerpc-unknown-linux    (the architecture the compiler we're building will execute on)
  TARGET: powerpc-unknown-linux  (the architecture the compiler we're building will produce code for)

BUILD must equal HOST; that is, we do not support building GHC itself
with a cross-compiler.  To cross-compile GHC itself, set TARGET: stage
1 will be a cross-compiler, and stage 2 will be the cross-compiled

This can be reproduced when building ghc with:

     sbuild -d sid --host=powerpc --profile=cross --no-arch-all

I was able to fix this problem with the following trivial change:

   EXTRA_CONFIGURE_FLAGS += --enable-unregisterised

Would be great if something like that could be done for the next upload,
so it's easier to cross-bootstrap ghc again for powerpc and sh4.
