Hi Luca,

You should be able to get some hints by looking at where ghc is installed.

By default ghc puts its libraries into directory which contains the ghc
release name. So libs can be installed at the same time.
There are also ghc(i)-pkg-$GHC_VERSION executables.
So it should be possible. However I don't know about Mac details.

But maybe someone else can give you a more accurate answer.
