[Haskell-cafe] GUI-Woes

Okay, I've got myself gtk2hs now (and remebered what shied me away the first 
time: click on dowload opens Pandora's cookie box).
Seems to work, although linking takes ages and the binaries are 
awe-inspiringly huge.
Now two questions remain (well, two I find fit to post here):
- is there a user-manual or tutorial ?
- when building with --enable-docs, how far should the ghc-docdir-path reach?
I tried /usr/local/share/ghc-6.4.1/html/libraries and 
/usr/local/share/ghc-6.4.1/html and was confronted with lots of
WARNING: could not resolve ...
in both cases.
