I don't think we use ghc-paths in GHC's Haddock now (Ian - correct me if 
I'm wrong).  And it's hard to provide ghc-paths with a GHC installation, 
because it would have to be built at install-time, or at least 
binary-patched.   So I think we decided it was easiest to just let the user 
install it with cabal-install later.
