I have created a package that requires an external library to be present on
Because of that, obviously, hackage fails to build it, and subsequently

So my question is, how should I go about configuring Cabal/Setup.hs to
process to allow hackage to build it properly and also simplify the package
for the user.
The packages that I'm talking about are bindings to
and subsequently, the higher level ones that depend on it
Specifically, the installation process for linux is described as follows:
To install Awesomium, you'll need to add the shared library to your

> sudo ldconfig /usr/lib/awesomium-1.6.5
