Yes, that isn't a "supported" workflow. The rule is that we support building
GHC using either:
(a) any released version of GHC version 5.04 and later, or
(by "itself" we mean a compiler built from these same sources).
In other words, building the HEAD using a 6.5 snapshot isn't guaranteed to work.
It might work.
