Hi Thomas,

between GHC 6.4 and 6.6 many libraries were moved into the ghc-extralibs 
source tarball. QuickCheck is among those. If you install GHC from the 
source tarball, you may also want to grab extralibs and install that, if 
you want an environment resembling the one you get with a normal GHC 6.4
