    4141The `testsuite/` and `nofib/` directories contain apparatus for testing GHC.  Each is a separate repository, which can be gotten with `darcs-all`.

     45The `mk/` directory contains all the build system Makefile boilerplate.  Some particular files are interesting: 
     46  * '''`mk/build.mk`''': contains Makefile settings that control your build. Details [wiki:Building/Hacking here].  The file `mk/build.mk.sample` contains a starting point that you can copy to `mk/build.mk` if you want. 
     47  * '''`mk/are-validating.mk`''': this file records the fact that you are doing [wiki:TestingPatches validation], by containing the single line `Validating=YES`.  That in turn means the the build system gets its settings from `mk/validate-settings.mk` instead of from `mk/build.mk`.  Remove the file to stop validating.
