It's in http://hackage.haskell.org/package/HDBC-sqlite3

$ cabal install HDBC-sqlite3

(similarly for mysql, postgresql, odbc). I suppose those packages depend on 
having the foreign library installed, so they come alone. It's a bit 
annoying (especially if one is not told which packages one needs), but 
having to install multiple databases when one wants to use only one would 
be at least as bad.
