I'm now ready to "make". I have set up a mk/build.mk with
the just following line:

prefix			= /home/djs25/testghc

I should then be able to invoke my test ghc as


I have some questions:

1. How does ghc know where to get its libraries from?
Will it pick them up from




2. What do I put in build.mk to change the version? I would like

/home/djs25/testghc/ghc-5.02.2/bin/ghc --version

to give

The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 5.02.2test

so that I know am picking up my test version rather than the real thing.

Many thanks, Dominic.
