The haskell platform is a set of libraries that does include libraries
to do OpenGL graphics. If you're not interested in graphics
programming, and don't want to have those unused libraries on your
system, then The Haskell Platform may not be what you need.

"The main implementation of haskell", namely GHC, can be downloaded
and installed independently, it comes with a minimal set of libraries.
You can work from there to install only the libraries that you need,
for that you'll need to download the packages from hackage and install
them yourself, or start by either getting cabal-install if suze
provides it, or compiling it.  That's not so hard actually, I've done
it quite often ( though on Kubuntu and Centos, not on Suze )
