How come? The /usr/local hierarchy is expressly excempt from the
restrictions that apply to the rest of the /usr hierarchy.
I have all kinds of stuff in /usr/local myself, no trouble at all.
But Haskell platform used to install binaries in /usr/bin, which is
definitely a no-no on El Capitan. I think a workaround was posted to
this mailing list, or was it on cafe?
Personally, I have abandoned Haskell platform in favour of the
installation instructions here:
So I couldn't comment on the viability of the workaround that I saw.
PS. I don't know what happens if /usr/local did not exist when you
installed El Capitan. Is it then necessary to turn off SIP in order to
create this directory, due to the restrictions on /usr?
