[Haskell-cafe] Installing GHC with libedit in nonstandard location

Hi all,

I'm trying to install the GHC binary for Linux. The problem is my libedit is
in $HOME/lib instead of /usr/lib

So GHC installs but when I try to run it is fails with: error while loading
shared libraries: libedit.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file
I tried setting LIBRARY_PATH and LD_RUN_PATH to $HOME/lib but it doesn't

Is there some way I can run GHC with libedit in a nonstandard location?
