That second line isn't needed. I think you are trying to follow,
but that information is outdated. Take a look at some files in the
utils directory, for example `utils/hpc/`.

Now it's perfectly fine to build this at stage 1 or 2

Use stage1 to build it, or stage2 if you need access to the ghc api.

, but when I change it to either of those building fails telling me that

You are probably missing an entry like the following in the toplevel

utils/hpc/dist-install/ compiler/stage2/
