This is baffling. Was there anything to stderr? The MLB
"$(SML_LIB)/basis/unsafe.mlb" is referenced in
mlton/front-end/sources.mlb. Either it should appear in an error
message indicating it can't be found, or, the files that it causes to
be included should appear. If you look at
build/lib/sml/basis/unsafe.mlb, you will see a reference to structure
Unsafe, and tracing through the MLBs, I would expect to see the files
If those don't appear then there us no way Unsafe should be defined.
We need more to go on. Can you please send the complete log of a
clean svn checkout and (failed) build, as well as the complete stdout
and stderr of the above command Matthew had you run. Thanks.

I don't see how this could matter, since you are failing in the second
