In the ghc5-doc Debian packages these files live under:

To install the html docs I used:

        $(MAKE) -C build-stage$(MAXSTAGE) \
                install-docs \
                prefix=$(CURDIR)/$(destdir)/$(prefix) \
with 'SGMLDocWays="html dvi ps"' in mk/

Unfortunately, the link does not work here either, since the file
users-guide.html is named book1.html :( .  But that's another problem,
I think, and likely related to docbook-utils.

Their counterparts all work on Debian.

Same as before - the file is called book1.html here.

Sad enough, in the Debian happy package I fixed^Wkludged around this
some time ago (in 1.11-2).  From debian/rules:
# grrr, this changes every now and then :(
sgmldocindex   := book1.html

Unless anyone objects, I'll delay fixed Debian packages until 5.04.1 is
