I have found that I need to copy the library/ .hi files across, although
Simon Marlow seemed to think that should be unnecessary. Also,
ghc/driver/package.conf.inplace seems to become the empty list; I
haven't bothered to look into this as it's easy enough just to copy
ghc/driver/package.conf.inplace.old over the top of it. This isn't
following the new docs online so YMMV.
