You should be able to build a simple Haskell program and run it, like

  $ cat >hello.hs
  main = putStrLn "hello world!"
  $ $target/ghc/compiler/ghc-inplace hello.hs
  $ ./a.out
  hello world!

Just to confirm - this is at the stage after "*** Building libraries..."
in hc-build?

I don't think the reconfigure step has worked properly.  It still seems
to be attempting to compile the .hc file, when in fact it should be
using ghc-inplace to compile the .hs file.

Check that mk/ has BootingFromUnregisterisedHc=NO and
