Add support for gcc-style "make bootstrap" which will build the stage 1, 2 and 3 compilers in the same build tree. The idea is to simplify building a stage 2 or 3 compiler (now you only need one build tree), and also speed up the build: there's no need to compile the libraries more than once, because the stage 1 libraries are used for stages 2 & 3. In ghc/compiler, the objects and .hi files are now placed in subdirectories: ghc/compiler/stage1 has the stage1 objects, ghc/compiler/stage2 has the stage2 objects, etc. The story from the top-level (fptools) is this: make all works as before (i.e. builds ghc (stage 1), libraries, etc.) make stage2 builds the stage 2 compiler make stage3 builds the stage 3 compiler make bootstrap does 'make all' followed by 'make stage2' make bootstrap3 does 'make all' followed by 'make stage2; make stage3' In ghc/compiler, the story is now: make all works as before (i.e. builds stage 1 only) make boot generate build dirs and dependencies for stage 1 make boot stage=N generate build dirs and dependencies for stage N make stageN make stage=N builds stage N compiler. Run it in-place using ./stageN/ghc-inplace. I haven't decided what to do about 'make install' yet, and this still needs documenting in the Building Guide. Also, you still get the same $(GhcHcOpts) for each stage.
