  * Support ${pkgroot}-relative paths in installed package info from hc-pkg
  In new versions of ghc-pkg, ghc-pkg dump will emit an extra field like
  pkgroot: /the/path/that/is/the/pkgroot
  and other fields may contain ${pkgroot}, e.g.
  library-dirs: ${pkgroot}/blah/
  This allows relocatable packages, with package files installed
  relative to the package database itself.
