I was trying to install Haskell from your comments. Got this issue in it.
After this step $ cd ghc-7.0.4

:~/ghc-7.0.4$ ./configure
checking for path to top of build tree... ./configure: line 1792: utils/ghc-pwd/dist/build/tmp/ghc-pwd: cannot execute binary file
configure: error: cannot determine current directory

I have ubuntu 12.04.

Kindly help what to do
