GHC build system ================ This is the top-level directory of the fptools build system. Several packages are part of this build system; if you got this as part of a source distribution (eg. for GHC), then you will have one or more of the following directories: ghc The Glasgow Haskell Compiler hslibs A Collection of Haskell libraries haddock A Haskell documentation tool haggis The Haggis GUI toolkit happy The Happy Haskell parser generator hdirect Haskell interop tool greencard A foreign function interface pre-processor for Haskell. libraries Haskell libraries (reqd. by ghc) nofib The NoFib Haskell benchmarking suite Additional documentation for each project can be found in its respective directory. In addition, the following directories contain project-independent bits: mk GNU make setup used by all of fptools glafp-utils Shared utility programs docs Documentation on the installing and using the fptools build system. distrib Tools and additional bits for building distributions Quick start: the following is *supposed* to work $ ./configure $ make $ make install where 'make' is whatever GNU make is called on your system (GNU make is *required*). If there are any other tools required for the build, then the configure script will detect them and tell you if any are missing. For example, a working GHC installation is required for building most of the tools (including GHC itself). The configuration script is a standard GNU autoconf script which accepts all the normal arguments, eg. --prefix=<blah> to install the package somewhere other than /usr/local. Try ./configure --help to get a full list of the options. There is usually an ANNOUNCE* file with any distribution. Please consult that, or the <piece>/README file, to find out how to proceed. Full documentation for the fptools build system can be found in the Building Guide: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/building/building-guide.html More information about GHC can be found here: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/ -- The GHC Team, email@example.com
