Using the -i flag. Unfortunatly relative paths (using '~') don't seem to work, 
so you have to type the full path: ghci -i/home/user/HAppS/

As far as I know, there is also no way to specify the search path in an 
environment var, so my solution was to add to my .alias:
alias ghci='ghci -i/home/jadrian/Program/Haskell/MyLibs'
alias ghc='ghc -i/home/jadrian/Program/Haskell/MyLibs'
