I only now realised there was another Haskell library in SBo :)

Anyway, I made my scripts install into the default locations, producing
/usr/$lib/$pkg/$ghc.  X11-haskell produces /usr/$lib/$ghc/$pkg/$ghc
(double $ghc).

Perhaps we should standardise on /usr/$lib/$ghc/$pkg ?  My only concern
is that the defaults might have been chosen for a reason; otherwise this
line works:

    runhaskell Setup.lhs configure \
       --prefix=/usr \
       --libdir=/usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX \
       --libsubdir=ghc-$GHC_VERSION/$SRCNAM-$VERSION \

I won't update my scripts just for this change, though, as it makes no
functional difference.
