If I see things correctly, the 6.6 extralibs contain the version 2.1 of the 
OpenGL package, i.e. the stuff currently in, at least I hope so. :-/

The current HEAD (i.e. contains the 
bleeding edge version of the OpenGL package, and the version number has 
already been bumped to 2.2 there (although the version is not yet finished) 
to avoid confusion. Due to some refactorings, this version has the modules 
you've mentioned, and they are in the .cabal file, too. So if there is 
something wrong, it must be the packaging of the 6.6 distributions, but not 
the OpenGL package itself.

To be honest, I don't fully understand the workflow for building the 
"official" GHC distributions currently. In former times, the whole tree, 
including libraries, had a CVS tag, so things were crystal-clear. But due to 
the new flexibility of making packages independent, we suffer from versionits 
now, it seems... Some comments/explanations from the packagers are highly
