more or less like this:
$ tar xvjf ghc-6.4.1-src.tar.bz2
$ cd ghc-6.4.1
$ echo "BIN_DIST=1" >mk/build.mk
$ make binary-dist Project=Ghc
$ tar cvjf ghc-6.4.1-i386-gnu-hurd.tar.bz2 ghc-6.4.1
the important thing is that you set "BIN_DIST=1" in mk/build.mk *before*
building. It affects certain tools and the package database.
If you can't build docs on your machine (a common problem), then you can
grab docs from another distribution and put them in yours.
