Great and spot on time for me. I'm trying to install
Snap on my Centos-6.0 ISP (bluehost.com) which has shell
but not root access and no OpenGL or GLUT.

HP has (IMHO wrongly) included OpenGL and GLUT so I've cut the gl and  
glut sections from the HP configure script and platform.packages list  
with a variety of build failures so far.

Previously I've been able to install and use ghc and HP in ~/
without problems. Is there any reason why this couldn't
be done with your justhub package?

As I've never tried this brute surgery on such a magnus opus
before I'm not sure this is at all feasible?

I hope this isn't too off topic.
