[Haskell-cafe] deploying applications that use plugins

hi all,

i am working on an application that evaluates haskell code entered by the user
using the plugins package [1]; now i want to deploy the application as a
self-contained .app bundle on OSX, i.e. the end user should not have to install
anything in addition.

what do i need to bundle in order for plugins to work on a vanilla machine? i
suppose i need ghc in PATH and have to ship modified versions of the
package.conf files that point to the corresponding libraries within the
application bundle? is there a parser for package.conf files? any pointers would
be greatly appreciated!
