      Rename some variables from FOO to FOO_CMD · 0481fe09

      This fixes a problem with commands like gzip, where if $GZIP is exported
      in the environment, then when make runs a command it'll put the Makefile
      variable's value in the environment. But gzip treats $GZIP as arguments
      for itself, so when we run gzip it thinks we're giving it "gzip" as an

      Reorganisation of the source tree · 0065d5ab

      Most of the other users of the fptools build system have migrated to
      Cabal, and with the move to darcs we can now flatten the source tree
      without losing history, so here goes.
      The main change is that the ghc/ subdir is gone, and most of what it
      contained is now at the top level.  The build system now makes no
      pretense at being multi-project, it is just the GHC build system.
      No doubt this will break many things, and there will be a period of
      instability while we fix the dependencies.  A straightforward build
      should work, but I haven't yet fixed binary/source distributions.
      Changes to the Building Guide will follow, too.

      A document on the implementation of retainer profiling.
      Focuses on the major issues to be considered for the implemetation on the GHC
      runtime system.
      Also includes a brief user guide.
      Gives the details on which files were modified for the implementation.
      The idea of retainer profiling appears in the following paper:
      `New dimensions in heap profiling'
      Colin Runciman and Niklas Rojemo, 1994.
