But it is only a problem for cross-compiling - yes?  And no more of a
problem than ghc already has?  So, should I push my patch for building
System.Posix.Types with nhc98 (i.e. without autoconf, with hsc2hs) or
not?  At the moment, the lack of System.Posix.Types is breaking the
nightly builds of Cabal/nhc98.
