They serve different purposes, hsc2hs is meant to run on the actual
machine the library is being _built_ _for_ to obtain information that is
only available on the final build architecture/operating system. as in,
an hsc file is the lowest level portable code you can write. c2hs is
more of a developers tool. If anything, I think c2hs should generate hsc
files, which can then be portably distributed.
