both happy and alex ship generated files that are generated with happy
resp. alex. So in Debian, according to our policies, we remove these and
re-generate them with the existing happy reps. alex binary.

You should be able to build them if you unpack the source tree, and
build without cleaning before. You might have to rename "dist/" to
"ghc-dist/" before – its been a while since I last bootstrapped these

Does that help you?

Oh, and where is the bug?  :-)
