Ok, I've got a hc-file-bundle now. Comparing to

I made (had to make) the following differently:

1. I copied also ghcplatform.h from the target to the host's includes
directory. Was that wrong?

2.) The directories glafp-utils and ghc do not exist in the ghc-6.6
sources so I simply called "make boot && make" in the top-level host
directory. (It failed in rts as expected)

3.) For the final "make hc-file-bundle Project=Ghc" I had to delete one
line in the toplevel Makefile:

[..]libraries/haskell-src/Language/Haskell/Parser.hs >> hc-files-to-go

haskell-src is not a part of ghc-6.6 (without extra libs)

So far
