Housekeeping: - The main goal is to remove dependencies on hslibs for a bootstrapped compiler, leaving only a requirement that the packages base, haskell98 and readline are built in stage 1 in order to bootstrap. We're almost there: Posix is still required for signal handling, but all other dependencies on hslibs are now gone. Uses of Addr and ByteArray/MutableByteArray array are all gone from the compiler. PrimPacked defines the Ptr type for GHC 4.08 (which didn't have it), and it defines simple BA and MBA types to replace uses of ByteArray and MutableByteArray respectively. - Clean up import lists. HsVersions.h now defines macros for some modules which have moved between GHC versions. eg. one now imports 'GLAEXTS' to get at unboxed types and primops in the compiler. Many import lists have been sorted as per the recommendations in the new style guidelines in the commentary. I've built the compiler with GHC 4.08.2, 5.00.2, 5.02.3, 5.04 and itself, and everything still works here. Doubtless I've got something wrong, though.
