Hmm, although you may not know, there is a way to find out.  :-)
On nhc98 at least, a simple directory listing of
will tell you what is installed.  I agree that this is not the
friendliest interface in the world, so I have now made it easier, by
adding the 'nhc98-pkg list' command (in darcs).  For instance:

    $ nhc98-pkg list
    array-0.1 base-3.0 bytestring-0.9 Cabal-1.3.6 containers-0.1
    directory-1.0 filepath-1.1 fps-0.8 haskell-src-
    haskell98-1.0.1 HaXml-1.19.2 html- HUnit-
    old-locale-1.0 old-time-1.0 packedstring-0.1 parsec-
    polyparse-1.1 pretty-1.0 process-1.0 QuickCheck- random-1.0
