Thank you. I'm happy to help anyway I can. I'll look more into it today.

Congrats, you ran into a "real world" bug. :) I created an issue to track it: https://git.snowdrift.coop/sd/snowdrift/issues/66 . Like Peter says, it's probably a good place to make a fix. Unfortunately it's likely a Bash bug, not a Haskell bug. Probably some variable in build.sh needs quoting. Build bugs are actually always important, so if you don't have a chance to get to this, I'll do it this week some time.
