great! Are you using the 32bit or 64bit compiler?

All you'd need to do is 'git checkout' the wip/T9281 branch, add the line

at the end of mk/ (and 'BuildFlavour=quick' should suffice) and
try to build GHC with that. If you end up with a working stage2
compiler, and 'inplace/bin/ghc-stage2 --interactive' reports loading the
package 'integer-gmp2' then everything went better than expected :)

Then running the testsuite via

  cd testsuite/ && make WAY=normal SKIP_PERF_TESTS=YES 

should only fail with a few testcases due to the strings "integer-gmp2"
vs. "integer-gmp" being different in the output.
