THIS SECTION HASN'T BEEN UPDATED YET. Please let us know if you want to use this
route. Unless someone does, this section may never get written, and the
.hc files distribution may not get built!
The intermediate C files are normally made available together with a
source release, please check the announce message for exact directions
of where to find them. If we've haven't made them available or you
can't find them, please ask.
Assuming you've got them, unpack them on top of a fresh source tree.
Then follow the `normal' instructions in
\sectionref{building-from-source} for setting up a build tree and
configuring it. The only extra thing to remember when booting from
\tr{.hc} files is to add the following line to the \tr{build.mk}
file:
\begin{verbatim}
GhcWithHscBuiltViaC=YES
\end{verbatim}
and proceed with doing a \tr{make boot} followed by a \tr{make all}.
That's the mechanics of the boot process, but, of course, if you're
trying to boot on a platform that is not supported and significantly
`different' from any of the supported ones, this is only the start
of the adventure...(ToDo: porting tips - stuff to look out for, etc.)
