I would suggest installing the haddock documentation for all
you use.  Depending on your system that may already be the case (e.g. Arch),
or you may have to install separate document packages (e.g. Debian).  If you
install manually, using 'cabal', then there really ought to be some way of
also compiling the docs and installing them.
