Trying to resurrect nofib/fibon

Hi all,

I went into the rabbit hole that starts here

So far I know that:

   1. fibon is not built regularly by any CI and it bitrotted significantly.
   2. Makefile's for fibon use undefined variables like INPLACE_HSC2HS_PGM.
   Probably those were sourced from ghc/mk/*.mk, but not now.
   3. Haskell courses are pre-AMP (this is easiest to fix).
   4. Makefile's build object files one by one and that fails in case
   modules depend on each other. sorts objects and that gives
   wrong compile order.

Does anybody know a commit-hash or date when it did compile last time?

Knowing that this module (fibno) wasn't used for so long does it make sense
to fix it? How about removing it?
