[Pkg-haskell-maintainers] Bug#736472: Missing dependency on GCC

Package: ghc
Version: 7.6.3-6
Severity: serious
Justification: Makes the package unusable


installing the "ghc" package without the "gcc" package results in this:

	$ cat test.hs
	main :: IO ()
	main = putStrLn "Hello World"
	$ ghc test.hs
	[1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( test.hs, test.o )
	ghc: could not execute: /usr/bin/gcc
	$ echo $?
	$ ghci test.hs
	GHCi, version 7.6.3: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/  :? for help
	Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.
	ghc: could not execute: /usr/bin/gcc
	$ echo $?

This problem can be trivially fixed by installing the "gcc" package.

Best regards
