* Use Cabal directly in place of ghc-cabal; make build root configurable. This commit implements two significant changes (that were not easy to separate): - Don't use ghc-cabal anymore for getting information about Haskell packages. We now instead directly use Cabal-the-library. - Make the build root configurable. This effectively gets rid of the inplace logic and allows us to place _all_ build artefacts in some directory of our choice, by passing '--build-root <some path>' to hadrian. The code for this was mostly taken from #445. * fix documentation rules * remove some leftover unrelated, commented-out code * more documentation fixes, address some feedback * cleanup * more cleanup * boot and configure explicitly in travis CI scripts * update cabal/ghc versions in .travis.yml (8.0.x not supported anymore) * temporarily disable dynamic ways in Settings.Default * update appveyor script * travis: when booting with 8.2.2, build a complete stage2 compiler * Fix CI? Try to fix the CI by adding the `debug` rts way back in. * Update Quickest.hs Replicate the make build systems build flavours. * Update .travis.yml - Run selftest, and build in separate instances. - try with python2 - and unify mac to stage2 * Update .travis.yml upgrade python on mac * [travis] os x: test the freshly built ghc * Get rid of two unused GhcCabalMode constructors * fix ghc-split rule, get rid of Install/Wrappers rules * address more feedback * ConfiguredCabal -> PackageData, more comments, more feedback addressed * make the complete stage 2 build the default * use a dummy package instead of base in Rules.hs * update CI scripts * attempt at fixing hadrian's -c option * .travis.yml: use -c everywhere again * travis: back to explicit './boot && ./configure' * update README.md and doc/user-settings.md to reflect configurable build root * some more feedback3a68f11c
