Comment(by Tobu):

 I am also interested in this. I wasn't able to find what code was copying
 the files from reading the source (sad), but mailing list threads provided
 more information:

  * http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/cabal-devel/2008-May/002817.html
  * http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/cabal-devel/2006-August/000152.html
  * http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/cabal-devel/2006-September/000168.html

 The September thread is helpful. Also note that the manifest should log
 ghc-pkg package registrations.
