This works - and adds all the Haskell stuff to the respositories list, 

Amusingly, I installed the GHC package, and then discovered that while 
GHC runs, it won't compile anything. But if you (manually) install GCC 
as well, *then* it works. (Isn't that the package manager's job? WTF?)

Anyway, I'm currently attempting to get cabal-install to work...
