Hi Andre,

are you sure you have a ../../ghc/compiler/ghc-inplace file/compiler?
You need to have compiled the "ghc/compiler" directory to have that.

If you are only building a different rts you should have used
"make HC=your-ghc-compiler" otherwise it will try to use
the inplace one (which is the usual/standard behaviour).
