thanks for the update. However it does not help here for I don't know
what reason exactly (perhaps previous false attempts might also corrupt
the build tree) so I'm running with today's sources again. Now, it even
doesn't go that far and fails on first step:

<T>$ make bootstrapping-files

done on the target machine. This is the step right before you go (on
Wiki) and describe what to do on host machine in `On the host machine'

The failure which I get from the step above is:

[59 of 63] Compiling Distribution.Simple.Build (
bootstrapping/Distribution/Simple/Build.o )
[60 of 63] Compiling Distribution.Simple.Haddock (
bootstrapping/Distribution/Simple/Haddock.o )
[61 of 63] Compiling Distribution.Simple.Test (
bootstrapping/Distribution/Simple/Test.o )
[62 of 63] Compiling Distribution.Simple (
bootstrapping/Distribution/Simple.o )
[63 of 63] Compiling Main             ( utils/ghc-cabal/ghc-cabal.hs,
bootstrapping/Main.o )
Linking utils/ghc-cabal/dist/build/tmp/ghc-cabal ...
touch utils/ghc-cabal/dist/build/tmp/ghc-cabal
"cp" utils/ghc-cabal/dist/build/tmp/ghc-cabal inplace/bin/ghc-cabal
gmake[1]: *** No rule to make target
`utils/ghc-pkg/dist-install/build/tmp/ghc-pkg', needed by
`inplace/bin/ghc-pkg'.  Stop.
gmake: *** [bootstraping-files] Error 2

I think this is wrong, since `On the host machine' paragraph then
requires to copy some includes files from the target directory build
which are not on the required place. My guess is that they need to be
generated in the `gmake bootstrapping-files' which fails here too early.

Any idea what's going wrong here?
