  * Do a sanity check on the HookedBuildInfo
  Fixes ticket #844. Previously the function that merged the HookedBuildInfo
  into the PackageDescription would add a library section even if none
  previously existed.
  Now we generate an error message if the HookedBuildInfo contains info
  for non-existant components (libs/exes), e.g:
  Setup: The buildinfo contains info for a library, but the package does not
  have a library.

    M ./Distribution/PackageDescription.hs -5 +1
    M ./Distribution/Simple.hs -2 +28
