If you don't have a .app-style package for your program, bundle
the HaskellSupport.framework file with your tarball and use
a shell script launcher to tell dyld(1) where the framework is.
e.g. if you install your package to /opt/MyHaskellProgram, dump
the HaskellSupport.framework directory in
/opt/MyHaskellProgram/Frameworks and use something like this:
exec /opt/MyHaskellProgram/bin/MyHaskellProgram "$@"
"man dyld" for other fun experiences in linking :)
