$ perl boot

$ make # can also say 'make -jX' for X number of jobs
$ make install
(NB: **Do you have multiple cores? Be sure to tell that to `make`!** This can
save you hours of build time depending on your system configuration, and is
almost always a win regardless of how many cores you have. As a simple rule,
you should have about `N`+1 jobs, where `N` is the amount of cores you have.)
The `perl boot` step is only necessary if this is a tree checked out
from git. For source distributions downloaded from [GHC's web site] [1],
this step has already been performed.
