      incorporate several patches from Qrzak (pkg include paths for Cpp
      phase, pkg extra_cc_opts in Cc phase, -D__GLASGOW_HASKELL__ for Cc
      phase), and fix error messages in unlitted files.

      New Driver
      ==========
      
      Most things work now, so I'm committing this for a shake down.
      Doubtless there'll be some breakage but things should be back to
      normal by the end of the week.
      
      NOTE: GHC 4.06 won't work to build this driver at the moment, due to a
      bug in its parser.  I'll commit a workaround shortly.
      
      There are several improvements here:
      
      	- the driver is written in Haskell, so is allegedly
      	  more maintainable than the previous one.  It's a bit shorter,
      	  at any rate.
      
      	- the package system has been generalised, so that eg.
      	  the RTS is a package, as is GMP and the prelude.  Packages
      	  are now configured via a configuration file, package.conf.
      	  Two versions of package.conf are automatically generated by
      	  PackageSrc.hs, one for ghc-inplace and one for the installed ghc.
      
      	- So that we only have to build the driver once, there's some
      	  special hackery to deal with locations of utilities, and
      	  other configuration stuff:
      
      	  ghc now has a -B option, which is used in a similar way
      	  to gcc's.  eg.
      
      		ghc -B/home/blah/fptools
      
      	  will run ghc in-place in the specified fptools tree, using
      	  /home/blah/fptools/ghc/utils/mkdependHS to find mkdependHS
      	  for example.  ghc-inplace is now a small shell script that
      	  simply invokes the above.  Whereas
      
      		ghc -B/usr/local/lib/ghc-4.07
      
      	  also works, for an installed copy of ghc in
      	  /usr/local/lib/ghc-4.07.
      
      	- the mangler, object splitter and GC stats gatherer are separate
      	  scripts in subdirectories of ghc/driver.  ghc-asm.lprl and
      	  ghc-split.lprl have been copied in the CVS repository to maintain
      	  the history (fingers crossed; I've never done this before)
      
      
      Other notes:
      
      	- Java support isn't there yet.  Andy: don't update for the time
      	  being until I can sort this.
      
      	- Windows support is also broken, but will be fixed in due course.
