Nope!  As long as they're compiled for the right architecture, GHC-produced
binaries should run anywhere, whether GHC is there or not.  This is true for
any compiler that produces native binaries (as opposed to certain languages
which require a virtual machine...)

people like haskell here in Heidelberg/Mannheim, Germany.

Cool! =)  It's probably also a sign of the great work various people have
done packaging GHC for various package systems.
