Indeed I want to point out that dynamic library locations are already handled differently between OS X and Linux in GHC(-head), not just Cabal: http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/8266#comment:14

So perhaps there should be a 'proper' fix/design on how to deal with dynamic library location in both GHC and Cabal.
