Just because they haven't is my guess.

I've tried playing with an older version of HaRe; it's build system is a
little weird but I'm sure it can be converted into a Cabal-compatible
format.  Part of the problem if memory serves is the use of embedded
libraries that aren't on Hackage either.

The other possible problem is the license; I'm not sure what license
HaRe is under.

Of course, it would also be nice if HaRe could parse more than just
Haskell98... :p (I know, I know, it isn't easy to change parsers, etc.).
