Maybe it is easier to just get ghc-6.6.1 - it contains Data.ByteString & Co
in base library.

Also, for cabal-ized libs (which is quickly becoming the rule), you can
install with --user flag and give it a directory where you have write

On a different note: I've been wondering how difficult it would be to
re-write Parsec so that it doesn't act on a /list/ of tokens but on a
Sequence (defined in Data.Collections from collections package). Because
this would mean one could use String as well as ByteString.
