One likely scenario is that you will grab <emphasis>two</emphasis>
binary bundles&mdash;basic, and profiling. We don't usually make the
rest, although you can build them yourself from a source distribution.

<para>The various GHC bundles are designed to be unpacked into the

install the whole lot in one go. Note: you <emphasis>must</emphasis>
at least have the basic GHC binary distribution bundle, these extra
bundles won't install on their own.</para>
