How about a simple disk image (.dmg) that can be moved
around as long as the relative paths within the image remain the same?

This would require to allow relative paths in package.conf files (which
would be useful, anyway). The wrapper scripts for ghc, ghci and ghc-pkg
could be easily rewritten.

I'm not sure if ranlib needs to be called, whenever the archives are moved.

Are there other problems?

Cheers Christian
