The following targets work both at the top level, and in any subdirectory of the tree. When used in a subdirectory, they apply only to the components of the system in that directory.
make helpin any directory of the build tree will elicit a message describing the targets available in that directory.
(default target, can be omitted). Builds all the targets for this
directory. At the top level, builds everything that needs to
be built for a GHC installation, including the stage 2 GHC, all
libraries and documentation. After
make installwill not need to do any further rebuilding.
Delete all files from the current directory that are normally
make. Don't delete the files that record the configuration.
- Build documentation below the current directory (if any) in HTML, PDF, or Postscript format respectively.
To see how these targets are defined: Building/Architecture/Idiom/StandardTargets.
Top level targets
The following targets are accepted only by the top-level
installs the things built by
all. Where does it install them? In the places you specified when running
configure, principally set by the
--prefixflag; see Building/Installing.
The same as
clean, but also removes files created by
distcleanpreserves files that would normally go in a source distrubtion. Note that after
make distcleanyou will have to run
./configurebefore building again.
The same as
distclean, but also removes files generated by
sh boot. The result of
make maintainer-cleanshould be a completely clean source tree, containing only revision-controlled files.
- Builds a binary distribution. A binary distribution is a copy of the build tree with the source files removed, such that it can be installed on a different system simply by issuing `./configure; make install`.
Builds a source distribution. A source distribution is a source
tree for GHC, complete with some extra files included for
convenience so that the user doesn't need to install
Alexin order to build it. Hence
make sdistonly works in a completely built tree.
