The network library moved from hslibs/net to libraries/network after
version 5.02.x.  libraries/network/Network/Socket.hsc is what used to be
hslibs/net/SocketPrim.hsc.  The contents of hslibs/net is now just stubs
that re-export the new libraries, so someone using the old interface
still gets the same stuff.

The building guide is the right place to look.
