If you are willing to switch from ghc --make to hmake, you get various
common suffix rules for free.
.y -> Happy
.ly -> literate Happy
.hs.cpp -> cpp
.gc -> GreenCard
.hsc -> hsc2hs
.chs -> c2hs
It is also relatively straightforward to add more pre-processing
rules of this nature to the hmake sources. For example, do you have
a suggestion for a DrIFT suffix?
