Comment (by RichardG):

 Some questions:
  * Were the computers PowerPC or Intel?
  * What was the specific version of the OS?  E.g., 10.5.6.
  * Which version of XCode was installed?  E.g., 3.1.2.
  * Which version of GHC was used?  E.g., 6.10.2.
  * What flags did you use when building?  E.g., {{{--prefix=/pkg/haskell-

 I just successfully built 2009.2.0 on Mac OS X 10.5.6 (Intel Core 2 Duo)
 with GHC 6.10.2 and XCode 3.1.2 without problems, so it doesn't occur on
 all systems.  I used the default configuration (i.e., no configuration
 parameters were specified).  It wasn't a clean install; happy, haddock,
 and other application had been installed previously, though there may not
 have been up-to-date.

 A diff of your build log and mine is pretty similar.  There is a small
 difference in that you appear to has specified a different prefix is
 specified.  Yours is {{{-prefix=/pkg/haskell-platform}}} and mine is
 {{{--prefix=/usr/local}}}.  I'm wondering if it might be a path issue.  Is
 /pkg/haskell-platform on your path?
