1.0.9 fails to pass 'make check' and 'make test_unit' on ppc.

GHC Version:
   Glasgow Haskell Compiler, Version 6.8.2, for Haskell 98, stage 2 booted by
GHC version 6.8.2 on PPC

System: ppc GNU/Linux (Fedora)

Take a 1.0.9 release tarball, apply the patches from
http://bugs.darcs.net/issue544 and run autoconf, make.  It will build just fine

run make check and make test_unit

Oddly enough, make test_unit does not fail.

The bug reported in test_unit is just a bug in the unit test itself (part of why
it's not run as part of make check).

The problems with make check are weirder.  I'm a bit puzzled, though, because I
didn't think that darcs 1.0.9 would build with ghc 6.8.2 at all.

It won't unless you apply the patches from issue544
(http://bugs.darcs.net/msg2244).  I pulled those out of the repo and applied
them before building.

Hi Jeremy,

Have you had a chance to look into this with Darcs 2?
