      Fix mkdirhier.sh on OS X 10.9 (#8139) · feb76385

      Mac OS X 10.9 mkdir is apparently stricter than the Mac OS X 10.8
      mkdir about which paths are considered valid arguments. For example,
      in a typical build on Mac OS X 10.9, the first of the following
      invocations of mkdirhier.sh will succeed but the second will fail:
      
      "inplace/bin/mkdirhier"   utils/ghc-cabal/dist/build/tmp//.  # WORKS
      "inplace/bin/mkdirhier"   bootstrapping/.                    # FAILS
      
      Simply prefixing the path arguments with "./" causes both to succeed:
      
      "inplace/bin/mkdirhier" ./utils/ghc-cabal/dist/build/tmp//.  # WORKS
      "inplace/bin/mkdirhier" ./bootstrapping/.                    # WORKS
      
      Testing indicates failure on paths satisfying all of these criteria:
      
      - path is suffixed with "/."
      - path is only 1 level deep (e.g., "foo/."; _not_ "foo/bar/.")
      - path is _not_ prefixed with "./"
      
      This workaround prefixes "./" to the path argument passed to mkdir.

      Reorganisation of the source tree · 0065d5ab
      Simon Marlow authored
      Most of the other users of the fptools build system have migrated to
      Cabal, and with the move to darcs we can now flatten the source tree
      without losing history, so here goes.
      
      The main change is that the ghc/ subdir is gone, and most of what it
      contained is now at the top level.  The build system now makes no
      pretense at being multi-project, it is just the GHC build system.
      
      No doubt this will break many things, and there will be a period of
      instability while we fix the dependencies.  A straightforward build
      should work, but I haven't yet fixed binary/source distributions.
      Changes to the Building Guide will follow, too.
