I assume you're using Cabal, but you mean a custom Setup.hs.

It relies on your Setup.hs doing the same as the simple one
(as documented in the Cabal User's Guide) for

        setup configure --haddock-option=...
        setup haddock --html-location=... --hyperlink-source
        setup haddock --hoogle
