Production quality bindists for hadrian
The bindists currently produced by hadrian are largely untested, especially on other platforms than linux. Moreover, we had not made a clear decision on what to do with respect to the relocatable GHCs that hadrian produces and wrapper scripts.
We realized that everyone would be happy if:
- the bindists follow the in-tree structure of
<build root>/stage1, with
bincontaining the actual programs for most cases, etc. No wrapper script just yet. This way we can just unpack the archive and call
bin/ghc. We still perhaps need to generate a script for ghci, but that's not really a wrapper, it's just a special case of
./configure && make installwould systematically generate wrapper scripts and install everything the way we do in our current bindists.
I will look into getting this to work soon and will use this ticket to report progress.
