Sorry for making this noise, but this was my mistake. I've build GHC 
with quick flavor set in mk/ and this way nobody can wonder why 
there is no doc generated.

Now, with a little bit of patching (by patches I already provided), I'm 
able to build functional Solaris 10 based binary distribution from RC1.
