 See http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4103

 In future, `ghc --info` will report the global package database location.
 This can be used to check that ghc and ghc-pkg agree on the same one, as a
 consistency check to make sure the two programs are from the same ghc

 Note that getting the location of the global package db from ghc-pkg is a
 bit hacky at the moment. One has to use `ghc-pkg list --global` and parse
 the result. Perhaps we need another ghc feature request for that.
