Hello devs,

Wiki page on testing says that in order to run all tests you have to
install additional packages:

and kindly provides a command to do this:

cabal install --with-compiler=`pwd`/inplace/bin/ghc-stage2
--package-db=`pwd`/inplace/lib/package.conf.d mtl parallel parsec primitive
QuickCheck random regex-compat syb stm utf8-string vector

After the af9b744bb
one of the packages, primitive, does not build anymore. At least, its last
released version on Hackage. I see that the problem has been fixed on
primitive's master (a2af610
But what should I do to actually test master branch of GHC now?

Best wishes,
