Won't help, my GHC is installed at /usr/lib/ghc-5.02/, exactly where the 
Debian package put it. And now that location is hard-coded in my Makefile.

GHC didn't seem to want to compile my .cpp file -- instead it quietly and 
successfully did nothing. Also I had to do this:

extern "C" {
#include "Rts.h"

...which I've recently entered a bug in SourceForge about.
