     23=== Why it doesn't work ===

     25On discussion with Igloo (Ian Lynagh) on #haskell, it turns out that hc-file bootstrapping has been broken in 6.8 since the beginning, meaning that only platforms with a working GHC prior to 6.8 can build a 6.8 or later. This undercuts the porting effort until #1346 is fixed. I may try the "quick hack" diff attached to see if it works out. The comment from the user who posted it seems to imply that it's incomplete, though.
