Agreed; for Debian we'd ideally have
./Setup copy --dev
./Setup copy --prof
./Setup copy --doc
to copy the "normal" libraries, the profiling libraries and the haddock

There could then also be a --list-files flag which only lists which
files it would install (presumably you'd first run "./Setup copy" to put
them all in place, and then "./Setup copy --list-files --dev" etc to
find out which files you need to take for which package).
In case it is helpful, what I currently do is:
PROF_FILE = \( -name "*.p_*" -o -name "lib*_p.a" \)
# dev files:
find tmp/usr/lib -type f ! $(PROF_FILE)
find tmp -type d -empty
# prof files:
find tmp/usr/lib -type f $(PROF_FILE)
# doc files:
