My local hs-X11 SlackBuild (and others) ended up looking just like
that, and I started on your SlackBuild before you specified
"libsubdir". (meaning we arrived at the same conclusion.)
I look at Arch, Gentoo, ebuilds, and the BSDs when I want
to find best practices for package building.
So I agree with your convention, but with one more thing to
consider; Some package builders use:
which might be a good idea for all non default haskell
I also agree that it's a good idea to prefix the haskell
libe with "haskell-". ("hs-" would also work.)
I *would not* prefix xmonad, because:
1) It's very well known as "xmonad"
2) It installs an exec. into /usr/bin/, so it's not
*just* a haskell lib.
Also to be totally haskell correct there should be post-install
hooks for registering the packages in haskell with:
ghc-pkg unregister (when package removed.)
I was too lazy to put that in my local packages.
(Partly why they are still local.)
Currently, I manage those steps manually.
 My haskell SlackBuilds ideas come mostly from Mikko Varri's
Slackbuilds, and I put attribution at the top.
 This goes for other standalone haskell programs.
