<para>Touch the generated configuration files, just to make
sure they don't get replaced during the build:</para>

<para>Note: it has been reported that these files still get
overwritten during the next stage. We have installed a fix
for this in GHC 6.4.2, but if you are building a version
before that you need to watch out for these files getting
overwritte by the <literal>Makefile</literal> in
<literal>ghc/includes</literal>. If your system supports
it, you might be able to prevent it by making them
<screen>$ chflags uchg ghc/includes/{ghcautoconf.h,DerivedConstants.h,GHCConstants.h}</screen>
