Gentoo has such a tool. The ghc ebuild instructs users to run
ghc-updater after upgrading ghc. It identifies all ghc library packages
that portage installed for all other versions of ghc and re-emerges them
in the correct order (possibly upgrading them at the same time).

It'd probably be a useful feature to include in cabal-install.
