What's the easiest reference for how to build GHC head and get it up
and running with cabal/haskell-platform?
I simply installed 6.12 + haskell-platform then built ghc-6.13.xx and
rebuilt only the packages I needed with "cabal install --reinstall".
Perhaps this is not the recommended way.
Indeed, something must be wrong because I can't build certain
packages. (I have problems with "base" dependencies.) For example:
$ cabal install QuickCheck
cabal: cannot configure QuickCheck-220.127.116.11. It requires base ==3.*
For the dependency on base ==3.* there are these packages: base-18.104.22.168 and
base-22.214.171.124. However none of them are available.
base-126.96.36.199 was excluded because of the top level dependency base -any
base-188.8.131.52 was excluded because of the top level dependency base -any
