NB: This commit renames some files. In each of your build directories, you will need to: rm -f ghc/compiler/prelude/primops.txt rm -f ghc/compiler/prelude/primops.i rm -f ghc/lib/std/PrelGHC.hi-boot lndir ../fptools # or wherever your CVS working directory is The change: Run PrelGHC.hi-boot through the preprocesor, as we already do primops.txt. This commit introduces a new prefix, ".pp", which means "run through preprocesor". In a previous commit, I changed ghc/compiler/Makefile to preprocess primops.txt into primops.i. That is gone now. We now preprocess primops.txt.pp (a file in the CVS repository) into primops.txt (a platform-dependent file, created at build time). We also preprocess PrelGHC.hi-boot.pp (a file in the CVS repository) into PrelGHC.hi-boot (a platform-dependent file, created at build time). The reason for using the preprocessor is because fewer primops are defined if SUPPORT_LONG_LONGS is undefined. SUPPORT_LONG_LONGS is undefined on 64-bit architectures such as the Alpha.
