The easy way would be as .stabs entries since that's what gdb uses.

However, stabs entries themselves are absolutely horrible (the design 
obviously started simple and acquired a bunch of ad hoc hacks along the way).

But if you're willing to encode everything as strings, you could spit out a 
bunch of what look like filename directives but put general data in the 
strings instead of filenames.

(Or read up on stabs directives carefully and try to force-fit Haskell into a 
design made for C, C++, etc.)
