I have not done it myself yet, but happy generates .hs files that should
be architecture independent. So you can build happy on another machine,
find the files (probably in dist-ghc/), copy them over and see if they
are picked up. You also might have to set the happy binary to true in
the call to Setup.hs.

If you can give me access to the machine you want to bootstrap on I can
give it a try myself.
