    28 The `utils` directory contains support utilities that GHC uses.  Some of these are themselves separate repositories that `darcs-all` pulls; others are part of the main GHC repository. These utils may be built with the bootstrapping compiler, for use during the build, or with the stage1 compiler, for installing. Some of them are built with both; we can't install the utils built with the bootstrapping compiler as they may use different versions of C libraries.

These utils may be built with the bootstrapping compiler, for use during the build, or with the stage2 compiler, for installing. Some of them are built with both; we can't install the utils built with the bootstrapping compiler as they may use different versions of C libraries. The reason we use stage2 rather than stage1 is that some utils, e.g. haddock, need the GHC API package.
