following git patch probably breaks unregisterised build on any platform for which NCG is not available (ARM, MIPS, IA64 etc.)

    Remove the OMIT_NATIVE_CODEGEN ifdef
    We now test
        cGhcWithNativeCodeGen == "YES"

the issue I see on ARM/Linux platform is this:

     error: #error "AsmCodeGen: unknown architecture"
make[1]: *** [compiler/stage1/build/.depend-v.haskell] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

The new Hadrian build system has been merged. Relabeling the tickets concerning the legacy make build system to prevent confusion.
