    44 1. [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/building/index.html The Building Guide] is very good, read the appropriate parts. 
    55 1. Optimize your set up for build speed.  Having to wait 10 minutes to compile because you added an export to a critical module is no fun. 
    6    1. Use MSYS, not cygwin.  MSYS is '''much''' faster. 
    7    1. Do not use -O to compile GHC while you are making heavy changes.  Once things compile smoothly and you want to test it, compile with optimization (on my machine, adding -O triples the compile time for a fresh 'make').

     7  1. Do not use -O to compile GHC while you are making heavy changes.  Once things compile smoothly and you want to test it, compile with optimization (on my machine, adding -O triples the compile time for a fresh 'make'). 
    88 1. If you do a 'make tags' then you can go right to the definition of a function (from any module) using alt-. in emacs. 
     9 1. If you need to add or delete modules, use 'make boot'
