i just don't get it.
please, can anybody explaim me how to do that?
i tried it the last few days with ghc-6.7.20070807, ghc-6.7.20070809, and ghc-6.7.20070810.
it always results in a broken library (without Prelude):

# ghc-pkg list
    {ghc-6.7.20070810}, rts-1.0

i did this on my gentoo-i386-box (pretty old, takes 1h for quick build, 3.5h without mk/build.mk):

tar xjf ghc-6.7.$T-src.tar.bz2 
tar xjf ghc-6.7.$T-src-extralibs.tar.bz2 
cd ghc-6.7.$T
#echo BuildFlavour = quick
#cat mk/build.mk.sample
) > mk/build.mk
./configure && ( time nice -n 19 make all install )

those extralibs seem to be installed in
but registered in
instead of
