No, with the configure method we can run configure on the target and
copy the files back to the host. The instructions at
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/Porting do so for
and look like they ought to for libraries/base/include/HsBaseConfig.h
But we can't run hsc2hs on the target without having a Haskell compiler
