[arch-haskell] Python version to run GHC testsuite

Thank you Jonathan and Magnus.

I did not think it could be as simple as creating a symlink. I was
somehow expecting that the python2 libraries wouldn't be found with a
symlink, but they are, and I can run the tests now.

I just need it to run the tests locally and create the documentation,
i.e. at compile time, so the symlink is a good solution.

I will maybe go for the more automatic/stable renaming for the long run,
it is a nice thing to know. I'll see what I find most convenient
depending on my workflow.

Anyway, both versions are simple enough to put in a simple script.

Thanks again!
