 This worked for me with the base libraries but did not work with the 
 mtl libraries.  With a little sleuthing, I figured out that the 
 libraries were built and seemingly installed in /usr/lib64/.... but ghc 
 couldn't find them.  Tweaking my LD_LIBRARY_PATH didn't help, so I just 
 copied the libraries up a level in the directory heirarchy and all was 
 fine.  I don't know what the right thing to do was or if there's just a 
 bug in the way that these libraries are installed in Fedora.
