After hc-build, you should unpack a completely fresh GHC source tree,
somewhere else.  Then 'cd' into this tree, and issue the configure/make

You're using the compiler you built originally, which is unregisterised
and builds unregisterised binaries, to build a new compiler which will
generate registerised binaries.
