If I use a fresh source tree without HCs then I need the unregistered build 
to compile, right? Unfortunately the debian build didn't get me very far 
since it stops with an internal compiler error (see previous posts).

So I followed the instructions of the Porting Guide
and compiled a ghc-6.2.1-x86_64_unknown_linux-hc.tar.gz in 32bit mode.

In 64bit mode:
./distrib/hc-build --enable-hc-boot-unregisterised
which stops with the error message I mentioned in my last post.

Or am I completely missing the point here?
