Even if we said something like the following would be better:

'runhaskell Setup.hs build' to continue. The tools listed above as
'not found' may be required by the package; the build process will
tell you if this is the case.

We need _something_ there. More complex solutions will likely have
their advantages, but _some_ solution is needed.
