How did you install ghc and the Haskell Platform? Vendor packages on Linux
may split out the profiling libraries into separate packages (e.g. on
Fedora 19 ghc-mtl-devel includes the profiling libraries, but on Debian
wheezy they're separated into libghc-ghc-mtl-prof instead of being in
libghc-ghc-mtl-dev). Installing such packages will not break anything using
the existing -dev packages' libraries.
