Dear Richard, GHC-devs,
Thank you for your reply.
I am using the 7.6.3 source distribution. According to
https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/QuickStart "perl boot" is
not necessary for source distributions. I did give it a try however
(repeating step 3 and 4 afterwards), but it did not solve my problem.
There is no sync-all script in the source distribution.
I went with a source distribution rather than checking out from the git
repository because it was recommended on the "Getting the GHC
Sources"-page and because I rather make my changes to an otherwise
stable tree. Do you think this is a bad idea?
