Thanks Donnie. I've also just modified the configure script so it issues
the following helpful message:
/home/simonmar/builds/testing/ghc/stage2-inplace/ghc is a development
snapshot of GHC, version 6.11
Bootstrapping using this version of GHC is not supported, and may not
work. Use --enable-bootstrap-with-devel-snapshot to try it anyway,
or --with-ghc to specify a different GHC to use.
