Good question. Since there are not so many complete GUI toolkits yet, I can imagine that someone would write a GUI in C++ or Objective-C and use a Haskell library from there. Other than that, I think most people prefer writing an application in Haskell as much as possible to exploit its benefits over C/C++.
