It may be possible to create a "package" which depends on all normal
"extras" but that seems counter-productive.

What is the problem with asking them to run the command:

apt-get install libghc6-fgl-dev libghc6-haskell-src-dev libghc6-html-dev libghc6-hunit-dev libghc6-mtl-dev libghc6-network-dev libghc6-quickcheck-dev 

which installs everything and doesn't saddle them with a ton of
unnecessary other files?
